How to Change Existing Structures into Chicken Coops

A child’s playhouse or play structure can be converted into a smart chicken coop.

A child’s playhouse is an ideal size for a small chicken coop, and it usually has a little character and detailing.

Do you have a forgotten child’s tree house or tree fort on your property? These structures are ideal because they’re usually built with good materials and are sturdy to hold active children. Carefully deconstruct these structures, and bring them down into the garden. Make sure new constructed roofs are watertight and sharp nails are removed.
