I bought a used 8x12 shed on Craigs List for my coop. I got a sweet deal, and the delivery was free. So with a little work inside to make it more chicken habitable, and some nice red barn paint, I was good to go!
If the heart of the doors are still good, you could re-cover the inside with some thin plywood and paint it for weather protection. Regarding the gap at the bottom, I would dig the dirt out and set some flat stones like pavers and you can bring them up to narrow the doors gap at the bottom. You could also do sacked concrete or something like these:
thanks!!! I'm in central florida, I know there are alot of byc people near here, but I don't know them, would feel bad for asking, I would pay for a day of help though! I keep checking craigs, now I'm checking more when i know what i'm looking for.
can you post a pic of the hinges on the doors, the hardware that holds the door to the shed! Sorry all but I suck at spelling! Going to need place some presure treated 2x4 or some bricks under that door to fill in that gap. A easy way to keep those doors closed would be a 2x4 across the doors one on top and one on bottom. Do live in Florida? I so I can come to you!
bout an hour hour and half. Thank you so much for offering! But I assume that your a man, and my husband would not be to happy, he doesn't trust other men around his wife and babies when he is not home.
You are very sweet to offer, and have given great advice.
but I have got to keep my man happy. He would be good with a woman, but not a guy. but again thank you thank you thank you!
