I'm waiting to get my hands on some power tools to start working on the coop proper in preparation for our chicks due to hatch at the end of April. I did a rough sketch tonight of a layout for it, but want input, help, opinions, etc. It's a preexisting building that's 10x18 that I'm going to split in half, so the coop will be 10x9. I want the water to be near the outlet for winter heating and the chicken door to be near the front as I plan to do a sliding door and I'd like to be able to open/close it from outside the run. The work bench drawn in will be removed. I've already erased the 72" roost to keep the top roost bar 18" from the wall. The 9" between roost bars is the horizontal space. I plan on doing DLM. The north wall is about 6-7' tall. The south wall is about 10-12' tall. The south vents are preexisting windows that are about 2.5x2.5 that I'm going to replace with hardware cloth and a hinged cover. The west vent is also a preexisting window that's about 1 sq ft that I'll also cover with hardware cloth. For the north side ventilation I was thinking of removing the topmost board and replacing it with hardware cloth, and replacing the board in the winter to protect from the bitter north winds. Tell me what I need to change!!
