    here is the coop ad run before the addition.

    I started with the floor, then the walls and luckely I found a friend who agreed on trading metal sheets with me for some repair I done on his power tools.
    here is after.

    Total cost is $150.00 and about 20 hours.
    hope you like it.
    Thank you all for taking your time and looking at my new coop.
    Now I need to go pick up some pullets I found for $3.00 and $4.00 a bird.
    Thanks again.
    Omran.
