    We bought three containers a while back. I used two to make a storage shed and the last one for a coop. It isn't done yet but I'm within a day of completing it.[​IMG]

    Still need to clean it out, add some bracing for the roost and water seal it. In the last one you can see the livestock feeder I made out of a baby gate that was on the property and the BSF larvae bin/composter that we built and will be using to feed the chickens anfvfish for the aquaponics system. Still some things to do but we plan to have chickens nh next week.

    I love it when things can be recycled. And what better way to reuse a storage container than turning it into a coop! Good job, very innovative.
