    Looking through all the coops here on the site I stumbled upon this one, https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=259888&p=1 , I have decided its the one I want for my 2 chickens. I went to Lowe's and they had the correct amount of OSB subflooring on the cull rack. I bought that and the 24 2x3's (they didn't have any 2x2's). The subflooring was some high dollar stuff that goes for $50 a sheet and I got all 5 sheets for $44 because the sales rep marked it wrong,they had to honor the price though. I have been busy working all day on this thing and should have it mostly finished tomorrow.

    I have also been cooking tonight's supper in my super cheap solar oven. Seasoned chicken and rice, will add some fresh sliced tomatoes for a delicious summer mean that did not heat the house up.

    I can take some process pictures but they are pretty much the same as is in the link above. I may or may not build it exactly as the designer though. Any modifications I make I will defiantly take pictures of. This is sorta trial and error as there are no dimensions to go by, only pictures. So far everything looks the same. Mine will be somewhat heavier than the one in the above link as the whole thing is made from 3/4" Adventec OSB https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=259888&p=1 . This is some great stuff but its heavy. If it wasn't for the great price I got, there is no way I would have even considered using it for this.
