Goat House Plans: This woodworking plan is for a run in shelter for your goats or sheep. This 6x8 shelter is easy to build and allows goats to enter and exit as desired.

I made the shelter tall enough for me to stand in when I clean the shelter out.

This shed is the perfect size for a small herd of goats (3-4), or you can offer two similar shelters for a larger herd. Ideally goats should have 10-15 square feet of indoor shed space per goat if they also have an outdoor area. Smaller goats may need less space. Currently we have three Nigerian Dwarf Goats and two Cotswold sheep who share this shelter. I added a door to our shed, but did not include a door in the woodworking plan as I found it unnecessary. Personally, I recommend offering two or three small shelters instead of one large one, and spacing them out across your goat field. This allows you to split the goat field into sections to do rotational grazing.
