If you have an old trampoline in your backyard and you do not know what to do with it, here is a very easy and effective DIY project you might want to consider. Create a homestead chicken coop in an old-school treehouse-style with your old trampoline. This is how to do it.

Pull the trampoline frame apart and used the pieces of the round frame to make two 2-section arches. Ensure that the leg stubs are pointing at each other.

Connect the 2 halves of the outside frame into the leg stubs on each side by inserting 3 8-foot of the safety-net pole. Ensure to have the right angles even though they might not be symmetrical.

Use straps to hold the frame together before attaching your 4 by 8 section of corrugated aluminum.

Get the second sheet and attach the same way. You can now remove the tie-down straps.

On each side, ensure to add one more horizontal support and arch section. Attaché the tie-down straps at the center of the completed section to hold them in place.

Keep repeating the above steps until the roof and frame is completed.

Use a 2×8 inch to build the bottom frame box. Before setting the box frame, make sure you create a level foundation.

Once this is done, you can then attach the arched roof and install the doors and the hardware cloth.
