Amish-made. Already want a bigger one!

Got this coop built by local Amish for a reasonable price. Can walk in to clean and scoop poo, has 4 nest boxes, two windows with screens that can be closed/locked and a pop door. Came unpainted.
Since getting it we built a run, added two roosts to the one already there, added 3 pvc feeders, filled it with sand and painted it red.
I still want to paint the trim white, get some cover for the run and open the nest boxes once the girls get a little bigger! I’m also planning to link their run to our nearby garden in the fall to let them dig up all the old plants for us!!!

Love your coop. We got a mennonite made one locally, already painted. It's not a walk in (though I wish it was - pretty pricey the bigger ones), but small enough to get to the farthest corners to clean out with a broom. We covered the top of their run with hardware cloth and put some tin roofing over a third of it for shade and cover in the winter. What type of sand are you using?
