Looking for some tips and sugestions. Moved into a new house this year with a few acres, yay! One of many projects on the list is the "mini barn" we'll call it. A short 20'x18' structure. Sloped roof, only 8 ft on tall side goes down to 4.5 ft (grr). So 8'x20' is 6' tall or less, that will be the coop. Cement floor. Will need to add windows and ventilation, only one window. Can I do deep litter, with pine shavings, on cement? Should cement have a coating on it? Such as the blackjack 57 ive read about, but unsure if that works on cement. If doing DL are poop boards necessary? Thinking the inside wall should be solid on bottom and top 1-2 ft hardware cloth. Should that help with ventilation and keep the dust mostly confined. Sugestions on how to get more natural light in there? Its on north side and with short walls really dark. Does that corrugated clear roofing work on solid structures or is it more for lean-to applications? (Btw, the structure has solid bones but a patch job roof with muliple roofing materials so a new roof isnt out of question) Hoping to have a solid plan and gather materials over winter. Wont start on it until next year. Then we'll eventually have a set up for more then 5 chickens.
