Displaying items by tag: Cheap Chicken Coop

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.  

Homemade Chicken Coop:

  • Dirt floor construction
  • Ramps, doors, flaps, egg boxes to be made from scrap material

 

Below is the breakdown of my orders.
