    There really isn't any way for us to answer that for you - at least not without some additional information. What condition is the shed in? Is the shed currently in a good location for your coop and/or is it moveable if it is not?
    In some cases a conversion ends up costing you more (both financially and in time) than building from scratch - in those situations it doesn't make sense to opt for the former. If, though, the shed is in a condition that would make the conversion fast and cheap, why go to the added effort and expense of building new?
