To determine the cost per square foot to build a chicken coop, we need to understand the construction costs of a standard six-sided model coop. The cost to build a standard six-sided model from scratch would be roughly double the cost of building from a kit. In order to calculate this cost, it is necessary to assume that you have purchased all the materials and pre-cut pieces required from a set retailer or builder. Some retailers will give you a free quote for your project, others will require you to purchase from them but will allow you to make changes to certain items such as the height of your doorways. Once you have made these changes you can then calculate the cost of your total project.
