I LOVE this!!!! Fantastic!
My brother helped me build it, I've decided it's to small for my big girls so I am having a 8x10 built and delivered!!
I built my coop out of pallets. I really think would have been best to simply buy precut lumber and built from that. Pallets are not square or level, lol, can be a real challenge to an old lady. The last pic is the run, also used pallets.
hello @evelynsrice ! welcome to BYC
well done with that build - as you say, pallets are tricky to work with.
The “foundation” is made of pallets turned on end, windows are salvaged, aluminum roof is from printing plates from a local newspaper, nesting boxes are wooden wine crates.
That's awesome! I love your covered run!
And I ran into the same issue with warped, uneven wood when I built my coop from an old fence. I don't think there's a square angle anywhere! But, as uneven as everything is, I was able to get the roof level. Haha! No more building from scratch for this gal. My next coop will be a converted shed or something similar. I'm glad I built my coop by myself for the experience, but never again..... Ugh....
Pallets certainly do have a unique set of challenges.
Well done getting them all out together!
Love my new coop and set up
Here is what I am starting with. I have 24 pallets and will be getting more
Our coop was an old dog house. We tore off the sides and added on nesting boxes. We also made the whole back side open so we could easily clean.
