    I would LOVE a Garden Coop kit! I am going to be beginning mine soon, and I am intimidated by the hardware! I thought about getting less chicks and doing the ark, but the coop is so beautiful!

    Yes, this would have been extremely helpful! I remember spending hours tracking everything down. Not to mention return visits. Great idea.

    I am currently in the process of building the garden coop, and the most frustrating part was trying to find roof screws. Both the Lowes and Home Depot in my area sell the corrugated roof panels, but not the 2″ screws for attaching them. the longest they had was 1.5″, which the manufacturer told me not to use. Finally found some online, but the cost to ship was more than the cost of the screws. Having your hardware kit would have been great!

    • Paul, thanks for your feedback. Not having to chase down every item is one big advantage of having a kit. Maybe I’ll have one ready for The Garden Coop before you build a second one. ;)

      Specific to the roofing screws, my local HD carries these in a couple of places, including right beneath the corrugated panels, conveniently enough! But I’m not surprised to hear that this varies by store. The 1 1/2″ screws are long enough to attach the more commonly used metal corrugated roofing, since that often attaches in the valleys of the corrugation. You were right to insist on the 2″ screws for the polycarbonate, though, since this material has to attach from the “peaks.”
