I recently ordered some materials to build a new chicken coop and wanted to share the basic list of items for those who might be doing the same. I found that the biggest difference was the cost of the sheet metal roofing: Lowes wanted $38 and Home Depot $24 per sheet. So that was the major deciding factor in terms of where to order the bulk of the lumber from. Lowes had a few items in stock that HomeDepot was missing so I ordered a few things from Lowes with free shipping. The main HomeDepot / lumber order cost $79 for the special truck delivery option.
