    He was just there at the right time when they stopped selling that model. Your post made me think of this.

    Folks would spend $2000 for a coop? I could build you something great for that. Of course, being in Omaha makes it hard to get to you...

    Looks like I am not the only one drooling when I walk by those nice wooden large clean windowed trimmed cute window-boxed sheds at the big box stores....

    My husband built our nice little first timer tiny 4 x 8 coop and it cost him $500 just in materials and took him like 10 straight days to build (don't laugh). Next time, like I said, I'm going pre-fab. And splurging on the extra windows.

    Quote:[​IMG] from NH!!!! I looked into those a little further than the lot, and in our area they don't come with hardware AND you have to pay to have it delivered AND put it together!!!! I am headed to Homedepot this morning for a bit of hardware for my little broody coop, and I am going to close my eyes when walking past those beautiful sheds [​IMG]

    This is my modified shed coop, bought from Home Depot last fall. Delivery and assembly were included in the price - which was too high. I always look at the coop section on BYC and am so envious of all of the carpentry skills I see. I would love to do a coop project, but I know it's way over my head. I did modify my shed though, and had fun with it. Wish I could find a carpenter who was willing to take on an old woman apprentice! [​IMG]

    If you're handy, you should be able to make it yourself for less.

    Costco has 12'x8 shed,window, double doors and storage loft for $999 after rebate. Shipping and handling included!
    I'm new to this and recently got an ark,but I think it's going to be too small for my five hens. Do I convert it to their coop or run? It's an A frame 4'x7 with enclosure of roost and 2 nesting boxes on top.

    We priced sheds too, ended up with the metal kit from Lowes for under $300 and cut a bunch of windows in it, added foam board and wood paneling to the inside walls to prevent it turning into a hot box, and recently replaced the doors to wooden barn style doors instead of the sliders it came with.

    A drill and tin snips was all we needed to cut holes in it!
