Trampoline Chicken Coop
"I was looking for a cheap and easy way to build a chicken coop when I came up with the idea of using a couple junked trampolines," says Allen Mason, Dublin, Ga.

    He simply laid one tramp frame on the ground with the legs up in the air, and inserted lengths of 1 1/2-in. dia. pipe into the legs that match the height of a big roll of chicken wire. Then he put a second trampoline over the top with the legs pointing down over the pipes.

    Once the frame was in place, Mason used self-drilling metal screws to attach chicken wire to the frame. To put a door in the pen, he attached another piece of pipe as support in one side.

    "I also used this idea to make a storage shed. Instead of chicken wire, I stretched a tarp over the top," says Mason.
