    Modify this playhouse for a cute coop?

    When we were looking for a coop, my first thought was to find a playhouse or shed to convert into a chicken domicile. We ended up getting a smashing deal on a pre-built coop, but if anyone else wants to try a playhouse-conversion, this one might be a good choice...
