We're in the process of converting an old shed into a coop. Most of the wood is scrap.

Pictures as we make process are posted here:

We're currently putting a good coating of Varathane Spar Urethane on all the interior wood and the new center post.

There will be double-glazed windows in the upper doors (scrap greenhouse windows) and the lower doors will be screened with the ability to slip in plastic covers for really cold/rainy weather.

Pictures of the chicks are here:

I just wanted to mention that the coop is finished. The finished coop is here:

and the other pictures are still in the main folders:

We're starting the enclosed run today (about 7' x 35') and will probably post some pictures of it along the way, but runs aren't as interesting as coops.

The coop is mostly scrap materials with some new bits from Home Depot and ACE hardware. The run will have more new materials as we don't have a source for enough scrap lumber and are about out of wire cloth.
