I don’t see any problems with using liquid nail on the boards. I did use screws but I generally didn’t pre-drill. I used outdoor rated Torx screws and they can self drill for the most part. I used linoleum on the floor and I use sand all year round.Thank you for your input. I will paint my coop also inside and out. Do you see any negatives using “liquid nail“ on the edges of the board? Also, did you use screws and, if so, did you pre-drill board with special drill which makes conical indention for the head of the screw?
what did you use for the floor? How much winter ventilation you have (total ft2)?
I probably don’t have enough ventilation, especially if this were built anywhere other than Wyoming. I have about 6sqft open all day and 1-5sqft at night. I regularly get 20+mph winds and yesterday I had gusts up to 50mph so that adds a lot of ventilation through every nook and cranny.
On the South side I have 1.3sqft open but I may take out that acrylic window and put in a screen (and a cover for storms).
The East side has 4sqft up at the top. I made the cover one piece and I need to saw it in half to close the right side by itself. I open the big doors to scoop the poop in the morning and also open them to check the birds at night. I figure that much air exchange twice a day helps a lot.
