    I dismantled and re-purposed a dilapidated garden shed into a chicken coop & run. I used new metal roofing panels to match the look and lines of the existing adjacent horse barn & stable. Thanks to the Backyard Chicken Community for many great design ideas!

    This coop and run has some really great details - like the corrugated metal baseboards and the hardware cloth floor - but some how-to text (or maybe some in-between step photos, if you have them) would be extremely helpful ... as in, Is the flooring attached under the baseboard? If so, how?
    The stepped board leading up to the first roost level is a great idea for the "littles" or non-flight birds (like Silkies.) This is really a great use of reclaimed materials. Some how-tos and why-fors would bump his article way up in ratings!

    I REALLY like the way you did your floor and the corrugated tin around the base of it. Keeps the deep litter from rotting out the wood. And the hardware cloth keeps diggers out..... EGGCELLENT.

    Great job! An heirloom in the making. Girls look happy!
