Being in Florida, its HOT and HUMID, so we put a nice 18" vent in high up to keep airflow in the coop so they don't get too hot. We used leftover shingles for the roof, so it does heat up a bit, but the open trap door, the two access doors and the vent make for a good bit of air circulation and keeps the coop reasonably cool. Here you can see the Egg Door where the boxes can be harvested without too much visibility from the chickens.
