Hey everyone I'm new to the site and it's great. Lot's of information found on here. Could use some ideas on coop design though. I currently have a shed which is 12'x8'x8'. My plan is to wall up one end about 3.5'x 8' with a walk through door most likely 2' wide. It's the inside coop layout I could use the help with. This will be for 4-5 hens and I plan on a run but don't know the size just yet. Any ideas would sure be helpful.....

The way I have my coop setup is on one wall I have the nest boxes. About 2ft off the ground. On the other side I have my roosts. In the middle is where I keep the hanging feeder. Their waterers are kept outside. Underneath the nest boxes is where I have my pop door for the chickens to get into the run. When you make your nests and roosts make sure the roosts are higher or they will sleep in the nests. You will definitely need some ventilation up high too. Any specific things about the inside you are curious about?
