Just an FYI to share for anyone else pondering a coop in the basement. This is just their night-time/winter snowstorm quarters. (its in the scooped, letting the floor dry stage atm.)

Notes:
I highly recommend Dollar Tree dishpans for watering bowls. They are big enough for full bill dunking but too small for the ducks to swim in.
Due to an agressive drake and broody hen I have in essence 2 flocks. the middle divider lets them feel separate but they still have room to roam (or run).
The poultry netting is a bit short and the ducks can fly over it.
They can push over the PVC fences so there are some anchor points to the ceiling.
Dollar Tree cat litter pan for the nestbox being used by the broody duck.
Pine needles for the nest material (Its what they were choosing outside.) Keeps the eggs sparkling clean.
