    Looks good.
    Love the large overhang, you will apprciate that in time...trust me....
    Just a suggestion, if you hinge the windows from the top, and hold open with a chain or rope, then you can control ventilation better, and even if rain hits when not home, it will not blow in an saturate your bedding. I have up hingeing windows on my coop, and it works great, I can get airflow, but still stop all but a driving rain.

    Good luck

    No problem. I learned from experience on that one. Its no fun haveing to ditch a bale of shavings after a storm cause it blew in the window.

    Tiffanyg2....I left you a tip also on your nest boxes on your post. (sorry for the hijack rhpues)
