Here is my official Coop design.
You'll see on the drawings CC- meaning Chicken Coop.
I don't have a name for my coop yet

Front of the CC.
The windows are for ventilation and a chicken door for run access. The two little rectangles just above the chook door are for when opening.

This is where eggs are collected and the human entrance. Oom Wilhelm Door, is a human door with three windows in.
Windows are positioned above nest boxes for ventilation.

Best I can see it is around 60 sq ft so can house up to 15 standards if winters are not too bad there. I would be sure to NOT close up space between top rafters front or rear, so as to provide lots of ventilation up high. That way the chooks have year-round ventilation without being exposed to drafts while on floor or roosts overnight. Then operable windows can increase ventilation and allow for drafts in warmer weather, when drafts are desirable.
