3KB's,, people from the cities pay good money to live like that for a vacation.
We live far enough from town to be comfortable
Lines of cars from Illinois drive past us to
get "up nort" . and here we are , ''up nort'' already with no driving involved.
and we don't have to share our campground with anybody..
it cooled down nicely here. only after getting used to the high temps, this cool down feels cold..
some low lying areas had frost warnings.

way back in 1966, we rented a country apartment in a low lying area called
(Nine Mile Swamp)
I had a large patch of potatoes growing. On Aug 8, we got frost. It damaged the plants, but did not kill them. the next night we got another frost and that was the end of my potato patch..

Today I am going to wear a long sleeved shirt. maybe socks, too..

If possible, plywood floor with linoleum on it for easy cleaning. Deep Litter method works!!
Consider poop trays under your roosting bars. They work too!
As mentioned earlier, VENTILATION!!!!! More than you think.
I am remodeling an old garden shed to be half coop, half shed. This will be my first coop and first chickens btw. Th guy helping me wants to do a floating cement floor ovr the top of the existing plywood. Is this a good idea? Thanks for any help in advance.

Hmmmm....no.
Why?
I would seriously question his skills before going any further.
@Maglette would be best to start a new thread here with pics of the shed, inside and out, and your plans to convert to coop.

Cement over plywood?

Plywood?

That's a really weird idea that violates a lot of norms for building anything.
