    Well, I have to go pick it up this weekend. The real trick is going to be how to get this thing onto a trailer....lol

    It is approx. 8'6" long x 4'5" wide & 6' tall and the loft area is approx. 5' tall. It has stairs inside to go up into the loft. I have not seen it in person yet, but it looks nice to me.

    What do all of you think? Can I make some adjustments and make this into a nice chicken coop?

    This is my first upload of a picture, so I hope that this works....lol

    That looks interesting! The loft can be the Honeymoon Suite!

    That looks great. I love the window. But how will you transport it?

    Wicked nice and free!!! Thats awesome!!! Good for you!! A car trailer would probably work to get it home. You just have to know someone that has one.!!

    ohh, the chickens will love having their very own loft. Transporting that is going to be.. a challenge.
    But a few little windows, and vents and a pop door.. it'll make a perfect chicken coop

    We have a trailer that is big enough to hold/carry it, but the trick is going to be getting it loaded onto the trailer...lol

    The lady that has given it to me said that her husband said that several men will be able to lift it onto a trailer. I will see what my DH has to say about it in the morning, when he wakes up. Maybe I should bring him a cup of coffee in bed in the morning to soften him up a little....LOL

    It looks like you are going to have to transport it by laying it onto the trailer on it's back side. I'd try to spin it around so the back is against the trailer and lean it down gingerly. Nice find!
