    thinking about building a hoop house style coop & using a billboard tarp as the cover.

    Any of ya'll used billboards before? How many years did you get out of them?

    anybody know where I can find one in central Florida so I can avoid shipping?

    Thanks!

    not even sure what it is, but I bet if you talk to a bilboard/sign company they probably throw out old or misprinted ones

    Seems like it should hold up to the weather. I have what used to be the canvas awning from the in-law's camper on mine. In the winter I cover the whole thing with greenhouse plastic.
