A builder has reported that after presenting the materials/cut list at the local lumber yard, the yard worker shook his head in confusion. It seems that the materials used here in the Midwest are not so common on the west coast. Please don't get discouraged if this happens to you. The idea is to use the most common (read least expensive) materials needed to do the job. Cedar in California is pretty scarce from the reports I have received. It may take a bit of extra work, but I am sure that with a little searching and talking over with your lumber yard people that you will be able to come up with suitable and affordable materials. Please don't think that anything on the list is absolutely necessary. The idea is to keep the coop looking nice and the cost low. Think alternative.
