I'm far from an expert on pigeon coops, but I did manage to build one that works great for us.  We started with a dozen birds and now have 20-30 to use in training.  They recall reliably and have been very healthy.  I used the very detailed (and free!) instructions from this website.  http://www.redroselofts.com/starter_loft.htm

It was a bit harder than I expected but can be done by one person in about four full days.  

Here it is under construction:
