    I am looking for simple coop plans that you only need straight cuts to build. I do not have a saw, so everything has to be cut in the store. Looking for plans for a med-lg coop. I currently use hoop houses. I find them very practical, but not great to look at.

    Buying an inexpensive circular saw ($40) is probably cheaper than having the store make all your cuts for you. But there are plenty of plans drawn up in the coops section above. They may not have cut lists and detailed drawings though. Try Anna White.com for a small coop plan, then just make longer cuts for a bigger coop.

    Thanks for the reply. I will look at the website. The store does not charge me for the cuts. I have zero experience with an electric saw and would probably cut my leg off.

    You can get those shed kits that come with the brackets and plans. Only straight cuts required, they say. Hopkins and Fast Framer are two manufacturers. Buying a square and a saw are a better value, but if you insist you can't handle it, this is one easy option.
