    Looks good, the only thing I can see I would suggest would a small door to each side. My birds would hit me in the face if I opened the big ones you have... I like it thou...

    also , you might want to add some shingles or tar paper or etc to the roof...that press board/plywood board does not appreciate rain and snow.... i had to replace the roof of 1 of mine due to weather damage...[​IMG]
