    Lovely! What's the material you used to roof the nest box? It's quite attractive, and I'd like to steal that idea!

    Quote:Haha, my dad said, "Oh, I'll be making the roofing for the nesting box" and half an hour later, he came back with that! [​IMG] I know, right? We had a bunch of scrap wood by that time, so he basically just cut them to fit sizes.

    Nice looking coop!

    Just be aware: I had the same type of roof on my closed coop and quickly found it got way too hot...oven hot...inside during the day when the sun was out. I switched to the white polycarb panels, and that helps somewhat, but I still have to have all my vents open and pop the door open during the day so the coop isn't too hot to put the chickens in there by the time the sun goes down.

    Are your vents on the back side of the coop? I didn't see them in the picture.

    Great Job!!! [​IMG] It may seem huge now but you never know when you might want some more.

    Can I ask where you got your netting for underneath? How does it work?
