    I would build an 8x8 shed. You can go to lowes or homedepot and get ideas from their sheds! OR if budget allows, buy one and change it to be a coop [​IMG]

    Could you do something like this, even if it's just OSB siding and corrugated roofing?

    Here are some plans for a gothic arch style green house that I used to make my oldest coop/run. I will be starting a new one in the next couple of weeks. I will post pictures that will fill in what is missing from the plans. (coop) There is a picture of the back of the old coop/run on my page. This will give you a general Idea of the finished coop. I will also be showing the improvements, that I will be adding this time to make it last a long time.
