    Gotta hand it to this coop owner for creativity in retrofitting a 1973 VW bus into a coop:

    Even if you're not in the area, the pictures are worth a look for ideas the next time you get a chance at a free scrap van! [​IMG]

    Oh, heavens no! I only wish I had those kind of woodworking skills and the ability to "think outside the box." [​IMG]

    The ad poster obviously put a lot of time and effort into the project, and I hope he/she is able to get a good price for such a unique conversation piece of a coop.

    Love it!!

    The only thing I don't like about it is the idea of storing lawnmowers so close to the coop, because of the petrol / oil fumes.

    Agreed! I think that thing has been for sale off and on for months and months now! I'm surprised he still has it!
