I've seen a couple of posts like this so thought I'd give it a try. I've got an open shed on my property (approx 10x20') that I'd like to use for a coop, and a lot of miscellaneous materials that I hope I can somehow use. I don't need the entire shed, and am thinking to use maybe half or 1/3 of it. I've come up with a dozen ideas, then scrapped them all, then modifed, until I'm going around in circles and am doing nothing in the way of getting things done about it. I'd like to keep costs down as much as possible too. I throw myself on the mercy of any kind enthusiasts here who would be willing to share their expertise. I need a coop and run for 6 layers. If it makes a difference, I'm in Nashville, TN, where we have humid summers and moderate to cold winters, not a lot of snow but a few inches some years. Imagine, if you will, all the junk cleared out. Thinking about using that gardening bench on the left somehow as part of a base for the housing of the chickens, and cutting a hole for the walkway down to the ground. Possibilities? I'm thinking to build a run extending out of the shed and maybe over the rock wall. Considering attaching walls to this structure... A better look at the bench. There are approx. six 2x4s in 6' length, plus 2 grocery carts full of 2' to 4' long 2x4s available to me also. I will have to buy chicken wire, nails, and a staple gun. Can I make something suitable from this? Opinions are welcome and encouraged.
