Because there is water run off from the tool shed, the height of the coop closest to the shed would be higher than the far side. We settled on a 5 degree slope, calculating that it would be enough for water drainage; especially since we would end up putting gutters on the outside. The height of the side furthest away from the shed ended up being right around 7 feet tall. This should be plenty of room for an entry door and head clearance.
