    Hello Kelly,

    May I ask how much you've spent total on the materials? I'm also designing a chicken coop now, and so far, we've got a 8x8x8 planned, and the cost so far we've figured is around $700. What are the other people's experiences on price?

    I haven't been keeping track. Been paying as I go. Probably around $500 so far. We already have the siding, so I don't need to get that.

    We originally figured $1,000 for everything, including the runs.

    Hubby and I got the tar paper, trim boards, pop doors and the first course of siding done today. Too tired for pics, I will post them after tomorrow's work.

    Quote:Ummm, no way! Do you know how much of my frustration and pain is in this thing? It's all mine, and I'm NEVER building another one. (well, at least not for a very long time, got some forgetting to do first)

    I'll compromise though and show you pics of MY dellies (and others) in the coop, K? [​IMG]
