We have planned on building a new coop and run, for our layers it is going to be 5x8' or 40 SQ' . I have been gathering used materials since about may . The only materials that I have had to buy so far is the framing lumber and sheeting.
Put in the pier blocks last nite after work.

Next thing was the floor framing I used 4x6" and 4x4" way overkill I know but it was free the ply on the floor was also free plus it is water proof.

Didnt get as much done as I had hoped to, but did get the roof framed sheeted and tar paper down ready for roofing. Those sheets of OSB were a struggle to get up there by myself, but glad it is done.

I used Stimson strong ties for the rafters. the ones on the ends I just screwed on one side then after I secured the rafter I bent the other side around with a hammer and screwed it down.

have another hour or so of odds and ends framing then siding and windows can go on. then work will begin on the inside.
