That looks good so far!!! A couple things to make sure with dirt-floored chicken coops that sit directly on the ground is that the coop is situated in a spot with good drainage, and that the roof drains well away from the sides of the coop. Otherwise, you could end up with a soggy, smelly mess after a big rain (I speak from baaaaad experiences!)
