Building suggestions ???

I am building a coop for my new chicks.
I was wondering what is the proper or suggested istance from the floor for the roosting rods (Using 2x4's) and how high off the floor should the nesting boxes be?

Appreciate all suggestions.
I'm not sure there's a proper height. Just make sure your roost is higher than the nesting boxes. My roost is only about 10 inches above my poop tray. My nesting box will be at floor level. I do have a raised coop, though.
My roost will end up being about 4ft high when done and my nest boxes are about 20 inches off the floor. The boxes are under the roost and 20 in seemed like the lowest I could go without being a pain to collect eggs.
