Yes, my thoughts... though there's a lot of building materials on site (metal framing and probably netting or greenhouse wrap. The current owner is essentially only taking personal belongings with him and everything else, including furniture, stays.All sounds good to me.
And I know most places are more restrictive than where I am...
But here you can get good quality building supplies from the construction trash area at the dump. You could also ask at any construction sites for their trash.
Any place that replaces windows should have fogged windows for free.
The boat supply yard has free old net, usually excellent quality for bird runs or garden fence.
Our local tv satellite instalation place generates pallets that they offer to free for whoever wants them.
But yes, usually quality wire you must pay good money for.
You could spend money on a super secure coop and run, that then connects to a much less secure run.
Our friend in the area also has a similar situation with lots of 'stuff' lying about. They also have an old fashioned coop which I don't think they'll ever be using as they are not chicken friendly people. (There were some rogue chickens using their house as a coop when they moved in). They're so excited for us to be coming up that they've already pretty much offered us to pick through their supplies if we need or use their place to store things.
Hoping we just don't have stoats - rats have been the only hassle here and they're more a nuisance than a danger and as mentioned, I'll be topping the run.
Have Golden Canines coming up and they are little flyers. They already fight each other for the privilege of sitting on my shoulder! Maybe one day when they're more accustomed, and I have turkey, kune kune, and goats running around, I'll give them a bit more free reign.
