    This is pics of incomplete coop. Mostly framing. Also a pic of current coop.

    The coop is 4x6 with a 2x4 porch. Corr. tin roof and there is a 10x6 run not shown. It's not as big as likes and is ALMOST done.


    EDIT: Okay if you look in background of pic you can see incomplete run. It's a old dog run that broke.


    The coop has so far cost $58.23 and we used free 2x6's for the frame and bought plywood from a builder's store that was rejected material. Some bargains. The plywood was $3 a sheet (it's the cheap osb board, will soon be covered with siding) and the tin was $12 for all of it (3 sheets at 26" wide and 8' long) Had to buy nails and such. Also a new saw blade, since ours was DULL...

    Quote:We joke about it is better than the house, our old farm house wiggles in the wind. I can kick the coop and it won't budge!
