DH is a welder by trade, and is the best on this side of town. He's not so good at carpentry. He made me a nice arc style coop and run out of angle iron and expanded metal and a small bit of plywood. He's also made me a coop out of 2x4's and plywood. To tell the truth, I really love his welded work much more than the wooden one. I wonder if any of you have any pics that you can post of metal coops that you have come across.
