    This is just a quick recommendation for those building coops. I got some supplies this morning from there and it was unreal. You can look through all the odds and ends, very neat. Walked out with a door(with a big window), 2 large windows, a doorknob kit and a million nails. Total price was $70.10. Look into them in your city and see if they have a supply shop. The windows were $2/sq ft. Well that's all, happy building.

    Habitat For Humanity is great I bought some windows for my barn there a few years back and they were $8 each for a 2x2 sliding windows with a screen. Great Deals!

    We have one of those in our area and it's a bit pricey for some reason. [​IMG]

    Our Habitat for Humanity is great. We go there a lot if we want to do a project on the cheap. Completely agree that it is a must when building a coop. Especially for windows.

    Yeah, there is no consistency in prices from one Restore to the next.

    We built two coops using a lot of materials from the Habitat restore.

    One thing I wanted for sure was a door with a large window to let in a lot of light.

    This Habitat Restore door was priced $15 at one location and $40 at the other.
