sears shed

As any ever had or seen one of the Sears 10x12 garden sheds made into a coop?  Was thinking about buying one and converting it, they only cost $450, plus a little inside work for nest, roost, and a petition or two.  Was just curious on how one would work and hold up

I have been using a rubbermade shed for 3 years now it has held up fine.

My coop is a 8x10 hip roof style garden shed. I divided it so that the back 6x8 is coop, and the front is for feed/storage. Mine is pretty heavy duty. Wood siding, shingled roof, wood floor etc. I like it? Of course bigger would always be better, but its what was here.

Eric - which one do you mean?  Do you have a link?  I'm trying to compare pricing and I would love to get a good deal on something like this and turn it into a coop.

Grog - you're using a Rubbermaid shed for your chicken coop?  Which one?

I have one. It works great. We had to redo a couple of things but nothing major.

Have wonderful Husband of almost 25 yrs. 25 yr old daughter, 23 yr old son, 2 cats, 4 dogs, 5 goats, and 19 Hens, 3 Roosters and 9 guinea's. My Dh made me get rid of the other 8 guinea's but I will get more. LOL

Metal sheds really cook in the Sun. (And I think are flimsy, anyway)

My profile pic is a coup that I built for around 300.00 found them on line for 1700.00 to 2100.00 so you could build a coup easier and cheaper than buying a shed and then spending money on it to convert it.  Unless you just want to.  But if you want to save money I would just build it yourself. jmo
