    Painted the walls for easy clean-up.

    Linoleum for easy clean-up also (I installed it!!). Russell added the quarter round (little baseboard) to help ensure edges stay down for years to come (hopefully!). :0)

    Good job showing the steps to build the coop. I think some more ventilation would be helpful. Come back and posts more pics when you get the run finished.

    Like your coop - the photos show how to put it together and I love the attention to detail - I'm that kind of person too! I like the "wife seat" where do you get those? I will put it on my birthday list!
