Ok, so we just had a contractor finish up building a deck for our home and we decided right underneath would be the perfect spot for a deck, coop, and run. We're unoriginal, so it's just called the Coop Deck unless you guys can think of some cute and clever name for it. But that's not what I really need help with. We need to finish doing some minor adjustments to it this weekend, and we need some suggestions for a few things. So, here is the setup! Upstairs for the humans/dog, and downstairs for the chickies and duckies. For reference, we're located in the Pacific Northwest, near Seattle. We have a very temperate climate but it is quite damp. This is a suburban home in a suburban neighborhood. Our predators are raccoons, coyotes, transients, and birds of prey. The entire backyard is enclosed by a 6' fence. The coop and run is 26 x 10 x 6 all together. Entrance door under the stairs. This is the inside looking out to the run. There is a door there. Clearly we need to cover those slats by the stairs and over the door with hardwire cloth. No problem there, I was thinking we could use that as ventilation. Not sure if it's too much though. The electrical conduit in the center there can't be moved, so we'll figure something out to protect it. Maybe make that the feeding/watering station. The run. This is the side of the coop. It's made of fence section. Do we need to worry about those gaps? Ok, this is where we really need help. This is the roof...which is also the underside of our deck. As you can see, there are wide gaps in the deck to allow water to drain through. Since it's been raining the past few days, you can see the support beams there are wet. I need some ideas on how to keep the interior of this coop dry. Also, the coop needs ventilation. Are the slats back there enough? Do they need to be covered? Please feel free to make any suggestions. The chickies like it very much and can't wait to move in!
