Quick Kit for The Garden Ark Mobile Chicken Coop

Hardware for
The Garden Ark


What's included in your Garden Ark Quick Kit:

Your pre-shopped, pre-packaged kit includes pounds of quality hardware, comprising three-fourths of the items listed on the materials list for The Garden Ark. These include:

  • » Fasteners of every type/size needed: screws, nails, nuts, bolts, and washers
  • » Door hinges, corner braces, and heavy-duty lockable latches
  • » Roofing screws with washers for attaching corrugated panels
  • » Poultry fencing staples for attaching hardware cloth (This is the kind you hammer in. If you prefer pneumatic staples, purchase those elsewhere separately to fit your stapler.)
  • » Custom-cut tubing used in the roof support
  • » OPTIONAL wheel assembly — a pair of 6" steel hub wheels and the hardware to attach them to your coop


What's NOT included:

This kit includes the hardware only. There are still some things you'll need to get:

  • » Chicken coop plans are sold separately. Add to your cart here.
  • » Lumber, siding, and plywood
  • » Roofing panels
  • » Hardware cloth (a.k.a. wire mesh)
  • » Paint, stain, or other wood sealer
  • » Tools

Because many of these items are bulky or individual to your needs, they're best shopped locally. The materials list included in the plans will show you exactly what you need to get to round out your supplies.


Priced just right. Ships free!

We've priced this kit to be comparable to what you'd pay in big box or local hardware stores. Not only is shipping fast and free, but since your hardware kit comes from sales-tax-free Oregon, there's no sales tax added to the price either.

If you'd like to do your own comparison shopping, you can download the plans separately and return for a kit at any time. For an overall cost estimate to build this coop design, click here.

Questions about The Garden Ark hardware kit:


Why are the instructions sold separately?

The Garden Ark chicken coop plans come with a detailed materials list, so you're free to shop for these same items however you'd like. The Quick Kit is offered purely as a convenience and (most likely) savings.

Keeping the plans and kits separate makes it possible for you to get the plans first, then come back for a hardware kit later — without double paying for the plans. Of course, you're welcome to get them both at the same time too! Add your plans here.

Why would I not get The Garden Ark hardware kit?

There are certain situations where getting a Quick Kit might not be the best option:

  1. You live outside of the United States. Sorry, we currently ship to addresses and P.O. boxes within the U.S. only.

  2. You're not using The Garden Ark plans. The hardware in the kit is specific to that design. You will need the plans.

  3. You intend to make major alterations to the design. Some modification to dimensions and materials should be fine. If you're planning anything more extensive, get the plans first, then decide on the kit later.

  4. Your coop will be in a coastal environment and you prefer the corrosion resistance of stainless steel hardware (very pricey) to galvanized or zinc-plated.

  5. You own a hardware store and can get your materials at cost. We can't beat that price. :)



Can I get a detailed list of what's in the hardware kit?

See above for a general list of what's in the kit. A detailed materials list is included in The Garden Ark plans. Suffice it to say, your kit will contain everything you need from that list except the bulky stuff (wood, roofing, paint/sealer, hardware cloth, pier blocks, etc.).

NOTE: On some items in the kit, quantities are less than what's on the list. For instance, the plans may call for a "1 lb. box" of a certain screw size — that being the smallest package you can get at a hardware store. But if less than a pound is plenty, your kit will contain the amount you need for your coop (plus plenty of extra screws and staples, of course).

Must I buy a hardware kit in order to build my coop?

No! The Garden Ark plans come with a detailed materials list specific to your coop, so you're free to shop for these same items however you'd like. We offer this kit for your convenience.

Should I get the optional wheels for The Garden Ark?

Optional wheel assembly for The Garden Ark chicken coop hardware kitAs called for in the plans, the 6" steel hub wheels allow you to tilt and roll The Garden Ark from spot to spot in your yard. If you do not want this added mobility, or if you plan to use a larger wheel size (other modifications required), then pass on the wheels.

Otherwise, get them! This is a great price, and even with the added wheel assembly, your kit ships free.

We'll issue your refund once we've received your item.
