I've been trying to get a playhouse for over a month on CL, and finally scored one today! Unfortunately, its the really small one with the half door. I've only seen a pic of one like it here, so I'm looking for ideas. I have to get it made this week. I'm thinking about mounting it on top of the run and making it a mini tractor. Its still light weight enough that I should be able to move it around the yard.

only the shadow knows.....
That would be a really good idea. The longer I have mine in the one I have, the more I wish I had built it differently. It's a bugger to get into and clean. Do a search and you can find a few that are really nice. They have been put up on platforms.

Mine is sitting on top of a platform so there is a sheltered area underneath. The chickens have finally learned to go under there when it rains. I have clear vinyl pieces that velcro over the windows to cut wind and rain. The windows are also covered with hardware cloth attached from the inside with washers and screws. The seams in the roof are sealed with silicone caulk. The nest box extends out one window. I made a large door to cover the half door and just open and close them both. The roost is a free standing thing that sits inside. There are a few little openings here and there I closed by screwing pieces of 1x3 over. Four birds use this as a sleeping place.
