I will come tear down or remove old lumbar, fencing, gates, tin...SMALL projects only please...this way your not stuck with a huge project you cant do...kind of like a removal cleaning, and you get the goodies.
my coop is made out of old left over hurricane ike fence, that belonged to the city here, we went around and picked it up..my coops door is a fence gate with the hinges to lock my babies in...my kennel of course we had and hadnt used it in 1 1/2yrs... I just paid for nails and chicken wire.....so if for a run...you can for now make it out of pallets.
Im telling you, you will be surprised what people throw away~~~or give away that is very nice and FREE...like this ad:

When you do a search on CL...type in EVERYHING!!!...dog house, dog kennels, sheds, play house, storage building, storage boxes, pallets,lumbar, fence, gates, chain link....it all depends on how they word the ad so be creative on typing in what you can think of...good luck...IT CAN BE DONE~~~~
I FAILED TO MENTION at the present time, my neighbor threw away his 10x10 kennel, it had a torn the size of two footballs on the bottom and its one of those chain linked fence, not the panels that are easier to put up. You have to fight with the chain link once you get the frame up, and he didnt have some of the hardware for it. We asked if we could have it, and pulled it to our yard...we live in the country. Its not in the best of shape, but Hey I threw my old dog house in there, placed it up on some crates to get it off the ground, put a chicken wire on the top and all around the bottom, and tarps. It works until DH can fix it up good and put a coop
