Built this coop with mostly 2x6s and 1x6s. All the lumber came from 20' pallets that I was allowed to get from my workplace. The hardware cloth at the top and sides were given to me by a friend. The corrugated sheetmetal on the roof was left over from my fence that you see in the background. I am goin to add a run and I will have to spend some money on chicken wire but thats pretty much it. Obviously I still have to finish staining the front of it. The rest of the coop is coated with used gear oil (also free from work) that I painted on with a roller. No smell or residue after a few days of rolling it on and it does a fantastic job at keeping the moisture off of the wood. Not the prettiest coop but its very sturdy and secure.
