Using recycled wood is great, however you may have to spend some time removing hardware on it. You also have to paint it if it is not treated. Digging a foundation is recommended in areas that have predators, otherwise you can sit the coop on the ground.

This type of coop can be used in areas with a temperate climate. For those of us who live in colder climates a few modifications have to be made to create a closed of section in the back, under the roof.
