Nothing wrong with the structure at all.
The only thing I'd consider changing is the location of the nest and the roosting poles.
Chickens like to roost as high as possible so that may intice them to your nest boxes instead of the roosting poles.

I'd move the nest boxes away from the roosting pole and put the nest boxes about 2' or 3' off the ground.

Enjoy your chickens!
