How should we build a chicken coop?

we are starting from scratch. We will get both laying chickens and meat chickens. What material should we use for floor, walls , roof , etc? Where should we put it? (1/3 acre backyard, fenced in with tall trees surrounding) Maybe you built one and wished you did something different. We have cold winter/hot summers. Which way should it face? Any other tips or suggestions?

There are some links below that might help you. Good luck!! =)
