Time will tell, LOL!

AND...
If this whole "Chicken math" thing comes to pass, I'll be building a whole new setup...

Shingles won't work well on that flat of a roof.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

it looks a bit slanted for me

 

honestly i wouldn't use shingles

 

since it's a $4 coop.. if you have some exterior paint or waterproof finish lying around.. just apply it on and that's it..

 

plywood will not last as long outside anyway..

 

for extra protection.. if you have those foam insulation sheet lying around.. put them on top of the coop too

 

i had some window shade screens that were lying around the garage.. finally got the chance to use them

It's slanted, but just barely.

Thanks for the reply, Art!
It's nice to know that people here are so helpful :-).

However...
With a 2 in 12 pitch and an I&WS, I'm of the opinion that things will work out.(Time will tell, huh?)
Here in So Cal I'm much more concerned with the sun.

EDIT: Upon rereading this, it seems I may sound a bit pompous or sarcastic. This is NOT my intention.

OK...
So shingles are OUT!
WHY?
Well, because it has dawned on my not so smart self that I need to be able to get into the coop to clean it. So I'm making the roof on hinges to be able to accomplish that. Going to need to keep it light as possible, so no shingles.

Live and learn...
