Any way to make a storebought coop sturdy?

So my neighbor just gifted us their flock. We are getting their coop once we can get it moved over. It’s one of those flimsy store bought ones.

It already needs a new nesting box door put in, so I was wondering if there’s any other way I could make it last longer? Make it more stable/durable? It will just be used to pen sick birds away from the flock.

Using it as a quarantine coop is a good idea. That's about all they are good for. Without seeing it all I can say is to just add more reinforcement. Perhaps cover with new siding and/or reinforcing framing. It isn't hard to make them bigger. Just cut out one wall and build 3 more walls.
