Update: Jennie Grant’s Goat Barn



The chickens exit the coop in the morning.

Jennie Grant, author of City Goats and featured farmer in Backyard Roots is the goat go-to person in Seattle. While up in Seattle on my book tour I had to see her new goat barn. It’s a space efficient design that makes use of every inch. It’s got two levels that incorporates a  coop for the chicken, stair-step storage that leads to the upper deck, and a milking station that lets her stand while milking, a recycled dutch door, built-in fold-out shelf… Check it out…


The barn has stair-step storage so the goats can access the roof for additional space and sun.






Jennie grooms the goats on the deck that provides views of Lake Washington.
