    We built a little coop in a covered area right behind our house, and used plywood for the roof and sides. We're both total neophytes when it comes to construction. After a couple of months we began to notice some slight bowing of the plywood in the areas where it isn't screwed down to the frame (doors, windows, raise-able roof), and now that we've gotten our first rain (and discovered that "covered" is nowhere near "watertight"), we've got some serious warping going on. Does anyone have any tips/tricks/advice on how to fix the warped boards?
