    Quote:I have not started on the nest boxes there. Looking to put 3 in, and the rest of the area will be more floor space or a "storage area. All this under a slanted door, accessible from outside.

    Looks wonderful! We just built our second one over this last winter in our garage. It's STILL in there LOL They have to haul it out so we can get the run built now.
