    I started on my coop yesterday. It is going to be 4x8 with a 8x8 run for now. Next year if hope to expand the run another 8 feet and get a few more chickens. The wood is all that is have had to buy. I should have less than $100 in it when done. I am using screws to put it together so I can modify/expand easily...

    On with the pics:

    These are the sides to the coop. You can see where my nesting boxes will poke out.
