Need advice on run design...please :)

I built a new barn last fall. It's built up on quite a bit of gravel on the corner that the coop is in. I really would like a run to keep these brats more contained. But I'm not sure how to incorporate a run into a hillside. It's about 2-3 feet up and out about the same distance from the side of the barn. Does anyone have advice or pix that might help? Thanks!


eta..also, the snow falls off the roof on that side. So, the first section will have a roof breaking the snow away from the rest of the run....I think.

Sorry I kept forgetting to take pictures and I remembered I already had some from the build.

The coop is in the back corner, where the board rests against the building in the last picture. It's 7 1/2' wide, between the posts and 10' from wall to center aisle. That corner is built up on gravel so outside of barn wall drops off about 3' starting about 3' from the side.

if you click the pictures they will enlarge.
