Optional Wheel Kit for The Garden Ark Mobile Chicken Coop

This pair of 6″ steel hub wheels and axles allow you to tilt and roll The Garden Ark mobile chicken coop from spot to spot in your yard. MUST be purchased at the same time as The Garden Ark hardware kit. (U.S. only.)

Description

What’s included in your Garden Ark Hardware 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
  • Door spring and galvanized barriers for use above the piers
  • 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. 
  • 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.

Optional Wheel Kit

As 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.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our 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 Kits are 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! 

See the description for a general list of what’s in the kit. A detailed materials list is included in the 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).

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 one of our coop plans. The hardware in the kit is specific to our designs. 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. 🙂

No! All of our coop plans come with a detailed materials list specific to your chosen design, so you’re free to shop for these same items however you’d like. We offer this kit for your convenience.
