Here is storage area. It is on the west wall. We used chicken wire and a chicken wire covered framed door to keep the girls out. The hubby built a table at the far end and I am able to keep food and medical supplies in here with no fear of the girls getting it. I am also able to keep a chair in the storage section that I bring out to the coop to hang out with the girls but also keep it from them roosting on when I am not in there.
