Anyone in the market for a very nice playhouse which could be easily made into a coop might want to check their local Costco. At my local one today they had this for just $299: http://www.kaboodle.com/reviews/kidkraft-outdoor-cottage-clubhouse Unfortunately this particular playhouse isn't available for order on the Costco website, so you'll have to check the store. I wish there were photos of the inside of the playhouse. It features a play double-sink which would make great nest boxes. The construction is very solid. If I wanted a nice-looking coop for 4 - 5 hens in an urban or suburban backyard, I would totally snap this up. It would need comparatively little modification to make it suitable.
