From Playhouse To Chicken Coop

If you’re going to make your own chicken coop, but you don’t want to build it from scratch, here’s an idea: use a recycled playhouse for the coop.
Used playhouses are everywhere–it’s easy to find one on Craigslist for free, or maybe you have one in your backyard that the kids are done with. With the addition of reinforcements inside to keep raccoons and other critters out, and a run for the chickens to scratch around in, it looks like it makes a pretty cute little coop. Here are some examples:

And one more, for the road.

Sharing is caring!
