Hi All! My Coop is a Vinyl Sided Shed, 2 windows, I believe I need to add more ventilation to reduce humidity. Today we've had rain and showers all day. I closed one window partially, you can slide it up or down as needed, the other window has a glass cover that you mount over the screen - I didn't put it on, and I closed the door, pop door open. It's about 65 degrees out and the humidity reads 97% in the coop. Last winter the humidity read pretty high. can anyone tell me how to add the ventilation through vinyl and where to put it? (Sorry for any repeats on the pictures). View attachment 1924612 View attachment 1924614 View attachment 1924615 View attachment 1924616 View attachment 1924617 View attachment 1924614

Can you take a picture of the soffits?
Yes, from inside and out.
They appear to be blocked off, no light showing thru on inside pics.

Also....
Where in this world are you located?
Climate, and time of year, is almost always a factor.
Please add your general geographical location to your profile.
It's easy to do, (laptop version shown), then it's always there!

Yes, blocked off.
DobieLover, in the first shot the exterior is shown. Otherwise, you can see the interior area in the other shots.
Right, but pics don't show how it's blocked off so better pics might help us advise you how to unblock that area...cause it's the best place to ventilate that building without piercing the siding.
