    Someone on Craigslist had a post they were stripping their trailer and have free windows, doors, drywall, wood, screen, bricks and more. I was wondering what ideas you can think of. Be creative! I'm thinking of something like erin's cochin duplex.

    Are the Trailer windows oval shaped? Do they have hand cranks on them? If they do, get them! I got two of them for my coop. They might be from a horse trailer but im pretty sure they're from a trailer. I put them on opposite sides of the coop so I can crank them open and let the breeze blow through. They had a spot to put screening on them so I got some and it cost less than $21 dollars in all. The windows were $1.50 each at a flea market!

    Good luck!!

    I haven't gotten any yet. He sent pictures of them and there are about 30 windows.

    Some are like in the pretty french doors, square pane that has wood that divides into 6 squares. There are the hemicircle that goes over windows. I wasn't able to go tonight, hope they are still there!
