With help we made our coop for $30!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
My father in law had a huge pile of used lumber dropped off at his house and called to ask if we wanted to come look and see if we could make anything with it...we made a coop! The only new lumber used was for the rafters and molding big_smile.png everything else including the feeder box and their roost rack and windows are reclaimed big_smile.png

I could tell you out classed me when you said "moulding"  my birds have never seen that. Nice coop, and I thought I was doing good making breeding coops for under $100.  Super job good way to stretch the nickels!

Composting is good for the environment..
Composting Geese is better for the environment
Composting ducks is best for the environment.
Start your composted Duck pile today,
if you do not have your duck
Borrow a neighbors duck to compost own...

duluthralphie my father in law did it as a surprise big_smile.png my mother in law and I are by no means carpenters\contractors. I legit said "oh this looks long enough just cut the rest this size and we are good". The molding covers up all our boo boos big_smile.png
It was a blast\nightmare to build big_smile.png
It definitely would have a cost a ton more if my MIL did have the windows and my FIL didn't have some extra lumber, floor brackets, and the tin for the roof.
It is by no means a high class coup but my guineas love it big_smile.png
In the spring I'm planning on trying to build another one, because I'm dying to get my egg layers big_smile.png
