Is there any way to insulate a play house coop?

    I live in CT. We have pretty cold winters. I was considering trying to pick up some play houses on craigslist cheap and convert them into coops. I think they are adorable! But, is there anyway to insulate them? Has anyone done this? I've been searching through posts and it seems like you lucky people with the play house coops all live in warm climates.

    If you are talking about the Little Tykes Playhouses, yes. Coyote Magic insulated hers by punching some small holes, and squirting the spray foam insulation in. I'm sure it's more complicated than that, but that was the gist of her post, if I'm remembering it correctly.
