    So I posted the other day,the beginnings to my new coop, it has quickly grown and is the girls basically have a condo! This is definitely a first for me, as I never have constructed anything before. Thank goodness for you-tube. It's costed about what a coop online would have costed, I am at about $300 but I am able to give them so much more with that budget.
    Not sure how to add pics to a previous thread do I will add them all here again. I am having so much fun assembling this!!
    I will say this, if I can do this, then you can too! Just takes an idea, and there are so many on the website![​IMG]

    If you've done all that for $300, you've done VERY well!

    I love the integrated storage, the elevated coop (they'll hang out in the shade all the time!), and the windows! The elevated door will also let you clean out the coop easily - just pull a wheelbarrow up to the door, and drag all the bedding out.

    One recommendation if you haven't already got it planned - go buy a cutoff end of linoleum, and glue it to your floor.......forms a nice seal, so your floor doesn't get soaked with poop, and cleans up easily.

    You've got all the big ticket items covered on your first try. Great job!
