Ok, so here is information about our coop and pen.
When I have a picture of the actual coop, finished, I will post it here.
Ok so here we are building the run
we are building the floor of the coop.
We used part of an old deck that someone had sawed into strips and gave away. We took two of them, attached them to planks for stability and then made legs from 2 by 4's screwed together. We then used free plywood I've been collecting to make the coop itself. We all worked hard together.

I can't really tell from the picture of the run and coop with the birds in the foreground, what the coop looks like!
It sounds like it will have a very solid, stable floor, but that's all I know about your coop.
Hopefully, you will come back and add some more pictures and details about building the coop itself.
What are the dimensions? How many chickens does it hold? Do you close it up at night or leave it open 24/7?
Could you provide a list of materials used? I know you are keeping the cost down by using recycled/collected materials, that's awesome!
Did you put windows or other ventilation in the coop?
In the picture I mentioned above, it looks like there is a plastic dog box/crate that is maybe being used as a nest box, but I'm not sure.
Thank you for sharing, hopefully you will come back and finish out your article!
