    Could you add a photo of the play area/structure AND your state (for weather knowledge) - both will help people advise you [​IMG]

    Are you talking about the typical A-frame swing set, made of wood, maybe?

    Does the playset have a Clubhouse on it? Or is this simply just an A frame with swings? To upload- go to the Uploads button at the top of this screen in the blue bar. Click on it, hit browse and find your picture on your computer and upload. Then, simply grab the html and copy/paste that link into this post. [​IMG]

    There is someone here that has built a coop out of a wood playset here recently. But his had a wood clubhouse- which is what he turned into the coop. The rest of it was made into a run.

    There is this one: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=1347765

    And
    this one, which is a lot more elaborate: https://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=89205

    Both
    of these have used the wood clubhouse part to make the coop. Hope that helps! I'm guessing this is what you're talking about, yes??
