    I'm not going to get my hopes up because it might be a complete wreck, but my husband found an enclosed 20x8 office trailer for sale for $400! [​IMG] We're going to go look at it tomorrow and, if it's decent enough for chicken coop material... I know what I'm going to be doing this weekend! I will post pics on my page IF we get it and when it's in progress. [​IMG]

    Sounds like a great deal! I love to see things reused or repurposed... If the basic structure is good, it will be a lovely coop!

    I think i know exactly what youre talking about, and if its what im thinking about, that would make an AWESOME coop. With a little work of course.

    As long as you don't have rot in the main supports you should be good to go, with mine the only problem was, the metal walls and the floor beams wore not flush,so we used that spray foam to fill the gapes and keep the mice out

    That could be a great find for $400 if it works out. You sure couldn't build one that size for the money. Good luck.

    I think I used ta work in there! Not really, but it does look like our jobsite trailers. It should make an awesome coop with a little work.
