    In my other thread https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/720729/frankenstorm-smashed-my-coop
    you'll see why I'm looking for a good source my area would even be fantastic, for a 'shed' kit,

    Ideally, I'm looking for something 12 x 12/14/16 that won't break the bank but is of good quality

    I want the kit so I can modify it to my specs. Am located in CT. If anyone has any suggestions feel free to post them, thanks Diane

    i bought a 10x10 shed kit from Home Depot for about $700 a few years ago. I see two issues with shed kits though. First, most of them come with 2x3's instead of 2x4's and second, they are a PITA to put together. I would much rather build a shed from scratch than have to measure every board and try to figure out where it goes.

    You might consider rebuilding the shed yourself and if you aren't very handy or good with angles then you might consider a framing kit like the one in the link below. Norther tool has cheap sheds, but i have no idea how great or crappy they are...see second link.

    thanks, after discussing it more, I think rebuilding is the way we're going to go..this way I can design what I want and put in some BIG windows and make it bigger for the chickens to:))
