I wanted a coop that mice would not get into and large enough for me to walk in to and found a children's playhouse on Craigslist for close to nothing since the owners were moving and it had to be gone.  (See photo).  I had it built on a foundation and then added old barn wood siding and rusty metal roofing.  I also found some porch posts on Craigslist and lifted the porch.  Steps, windows and a door were also found in Craigslist or in local antique shops.  Does anyone know where I can find a rooster weathervane for the top?  I would love to have a rooster overlooking the girls.
