    Great! Love it! Functional and full of character.

    I can't think of anything you need to do other then what you list yourself.

    I built a turkey coop from machine packing cases and topped it with thatch. It does the job well and, like yours, blends with the surroundings.

    Very cool. Love the look. I'd offer ideas but it looks like you have that nice coop undercontrol.
