    I had been given an old greenhouse so I figured it could make a great frame for my coop.

    It took quite a bit of work to pre-drill the holes in the pipe so I could screw the wall panels on. (the self-tapping screws wouldn't cut through without drilling)

    Here is the inside, I'm still working on getting the roost done the way I want it. I have removed part of the shelving on the left to build a ladder up to a roost bar running across the back wall.

    The finished product........Until I make some more changes and additions.

    I hope everyone likes this. Maybe it will give someone ideas for their own remodel of a freebie, into a brand new chicken coop.

    Thanks Buckguy20. So far they have been a great pair of chickens. We got an egg from her the 2nd day we had her and at least every other day since.

    We are about 30 miles north of little rock.
