The Poultry 'Penthouse' was designed and popularised by Gerry Bolla, Poultry Officer with NSW DPI at Gosford for many years. When Gerry retired from the Department there was a need to update the plans to keep them current.

Barry Rees, a recently-retired TAFE carpentry teacher, came to the rescue and constructed a Poultry 'Penthouse' especially for the Tocal Field Days. During construction he added his own innovations and modifications to the design.

The specifications in this book are Barry's interpretation of Gerry's original design.

The 'Penthouse' will comfortably house 12-15 hens full time. If birds are let out daily to free-range, the 'Penthouse' can hold up to 25 birds, sleeping on the slatted floor at night. The 'Penthouse' will need to be securely closed at night to keep out foxes.

Includes a materials list and step-by-step construction method. Published in 2007, Building the Poultry Penthouse is A4 in size.
