    You know those throw together metal carports? Has anyone ever used one of those for a coop? I'm wanting something that will have an ally down the middle and then runs off either side. It will be used for bantams. If you have used something similar, can I see pics? Thanks!!

    I used one for a barn so there's no reason why you couldnt use one for a coop.
    Mine is 18 X 36. I enclosed the ends myself, and put a couple of large stalls and a walkway inside.

    Most places that have them can sell you extra sheets of metal if you want the sides lower. I also used metal on the ends, but could have used wood siding. Use self tapping sheet metal screws to attach to the supports and it goes together easily
