The $210,000 Chicken Coop

Be it ever so humble there's no place like a 775 square foot, Palladian-style chicken coop with a price tag of 130,000 British Pounds (About $210,000).  The coop was designed by Christopher Smallwood Architects for British financier Crispin Odey.

Mr Odey is a hedge fund manager and founder of Odey Asset Management. According to the London newspaper, The Telegraph, the coop is design as follows:

"The temple's roof - adorned with Anthemia statuette - will be fashioned in grey zinc; the pediments, cornice, architrave and frieze are in English oak; and the columns, pilasters and rusticated stone plinth are being hewn from the finest grey Forest of Dean sandstone."

With unemployment in Spain and Greece at 25% and with Europe teetering on the edge of a financial meltdown, its certainly is gratifying to know that the bankers have plenty of money to spend on their little projects.
