This isn't a very good pic, but I have a single roost about 6' long and 3' off the ground, about 10" from the back wall.  It is a 2x4 that I screwed into the rafters while framing the structure.  I also made a little free standing roost about half as tall as a starter roost as my girls were 11 weeks when I got them last week.  Some of them fly directly to the main roost now, and some hop from the lower roost to the main roost still, so I am leaving the low one in for now.  I am planning to put a poop board under the main roost pretty soon.
