OMG, I just spent about $600 for most of what I will need to build a 5x10 Whichita Coop. That does not include the cost of the plan/materials list or the very small amount of lumber I have. I have a bunch of scraps from redoing our deck and if I had any skills whatsoever I could probably have saved a bunch and used them... but I'm a data geek. This is something completely new for me. So I pretty much used the material list like a shopping list and I'm going to stick to the plan. Except the house will be on the left not the right... I will need to buy either Plexiglas or real glass to finish the windows and I may get some blackjack 75 for the house floor yet.... Wish me luck. I'm alternately excited and very, very afraid.
