I'm working on a design for a 8'LX8'WX6'H coop with a gable roof and a 8'WX20'LX6'H roof covered run. The roof will actually extend from the coop building to the run so it's sort of like all one structure. This will be to keep a flock of about 6-8 birds. I know it's a little larger than necessary but I'd rather err on the side of too big rather than too small. I live in North Phoenix, AZ so of course it gets hot in the summer so that's why the covered run is important to me. Anyway, I'm just in the rough draft stages at this point and my estimate is running up around $1,000 for everything. Does that sound about right or excessive? I'm new at chickens so I don't know what others consider high. I looked into the commercial coops but they were all way, way too small and cost a pretty penny to boot. So I'm thinking even though $1k sounds like a lot it's probably not all that bad when you consider what storage sheds and commercial coops cost. Even the cheapest 8'X8' wood shed with bad reviews at Homeless Depot costs about $800 before tax and delivery, and then you still have to get the paint, shingles, and floor for the particular shed I'm thinking about. Also that doesn't include a run. So I'm pretty sure I'm on the right track but I'd welcome any comments.
