    I really think it might take you coupe days to all that, each section needs a window for light a roost about 30" from floor and 3 nest boxes.
    If you want to section it go a head and buid your self a coridor or a Path about 3' wide from the door of the semi to the end. then if it is 52' long take the first 22' for commen area and storage and make another 3 sections each 10'.
    my big problem I am not that good on computer to do plans, but if you not real far from louisville, I would be happy to help.

    Omran.
