    Nice job. What is the foot print size? The only ? I have is how much ventilation do you have in there? You might want to cut in some vents, perhaps even remove a couple of those blocks and put a vent in on that side.

    The foot print is 6' ×8'. The long side windows and rear window flip up to open for plenty of ventilation. I'm In the planing stage for the run it will also in close the coop
