    image.jpeg Hi folks, wondering if these resin sheds would make suitable coops with some customization, I’m really not wanting a wooden one, so have been looking at alternatives. Would love to hear the thoughts of those more experienced, thanks.

    I use one for my coop. It was more economical for the coastal climate here. It can get hot inside when temps get over 80*, but that only happens once or twice a year at most. Mine has a skylight along the ridge that lets in a good amount of light and adds ventilation. DSCN0181.JPG

    Thanks, that’s very helpful....the brown one in the photos I posted has let’s in light at the top, I did wonder if that would be useful.

    I was going to get a resin shed, but then was talked out of it becsuse I have no shade from trees at all. People do use them - and apparently in the right setting they do well.
