My 'hired' help is dh...it seems he is always trying to rethink my designs--no matter what I am try to do or really get him to do!!! I designed my coop, drew up plans, made a list of lenghts, widths, heights, everything I could think of... I have it all laid out "just right'..Just like Goldielocks!! I wanted the chicken door on the same side as the nestbox--he wants to mount the nestboxes 'in the center of the wall' which will hang over part of my chicken door!! Why??? BEcause it should be centered!!! He was determined to hang it right there soooooo I finally gave in and said 'fine'!!! Not sure how the hens TRYING to lay an egg will react to someone traveling under her to leave or enter the coop!! Somethings are just not worth the struggle--I did get the ten foot roost and dropping board not just 8' 'because that's the lenght of boards he has!!' The coop is coming along well. really... I will be so happy when it's finished.. My grandson asked if I was going to have baby chicks or just eggs.. I said 'BOTH in due time' made him happy..
