We are doing it ourselves and the catalog is roughly 9800 entries. That was my thought to add just one copy for each record. We have assigned a barcode range for each of our buildings so if I add the barcode to each of those default items that should be good, right?

If the collection is small enough, just entering the items by hand may
be sufficient. Alternatively, when you prepare the MARC bib file to
load into Koha, you could using MarcEdit or the like to add a 952
field to each bib so that there is at least one item with the correct
home library. If the collection is large enough that you are paying a
vendor to print "smart" barcode labels for you, you can likely have
the vendor add 952 fields to your MARC bib records for you.
