We are going to use wood from a shed kit that was never assembled for the chicken coop. Some of the pieces have been used for other things. I helped my husband pull the pieces down from the barn loft yesterday. It looks like we'll be able to make it work. I am only building a 4ft x 4ft coop.
My sister-in-law is taking our 2 year old for the day on Saturday so we can work on it. He's at that age where he's into everything and it would not be safe to have him outside with us while we're working on it.
