    I'm sorry to hear you lost one.

    I know if you search some have used wood pallets(there usually found free) Is there somewhere you can put in them while you get your materials? a garage> even in your basement in a large dogcrate?

    Here is a cool site showing a shed plus others have submitted there designs with pallets... searching the term 'pallet coop' or 'wood pallet' on here will also get you threads with BYC coops made with them.

    You could also find a few used dog houses [​IMG] they are always cheap or even free!

    We just converted one of our old work sheds into it, they love it! They free range all day and are waiting in the coop to be locked up at 8pm!
