So i built my coop with salvage wood, a metal frame and chicken wire scrapes.
since I live in california where lots of birds of prey are i gave it a tin roof that i found in my backyard after i moved in. it is 7x4x22ft. has door that swings both directions (in and out)
features 2 nesting boxes that are removable, each box has 2 nests.
door that can be opened to get eggs and maintain the coop.
I have a small backyard so this is the coop with the run attached.
this coop only cost me $10 to build. had to buy nails and screws XD

This is great! I wish I could say I only spent 10$ on mine, oh my lol. I will agree that you should put some bigger roosts in, You can sand down the edges of a 2x4 and put that in, have them perch on the wider part. I know how much work building a coop is, we have built 2! One 8'x16' and the other 4'x7'. Its a loooot of work!!! Great build and pictures!

Great pics & a great reuse of found and leftover materials. You may want to put in some wider roosts (at least sideways 2X4s) but otherwise it's a great little set-up. Your budget-friendly coop is liable to get some people thinking about doing the same, so adding some how-to pointers would be a big help to someone wanting to attempt scrapping together something similar on their own. Very cool!
