Setting up a new homestead when you’re on a budget can be tough. It requires a creative spirit, scrounging ability, and some basic DIY skills.
If you go through the work and expense of raising chickens for eggs, it’s important to provide them with a predator-resistant home so they can sleep securely at night. With security can come great expense, however. That isn’t the case with this DIY. Check out this chicken coop that uses an old rusty swingset for its basis and was completed with other scrounged items. Very few things had to be purchased to make this shelter. Don’t limit yourself to chickens – the same type of shelter could be used for other small animals.
