    Ran out of roofing shingles or I might have finished every thing but the locks.


    The doors are vented for summer cooling. SInce it's a duplex there are door back and front.

    Half the roof hinges for looking in without anyone escaping.


    Side doors for easy access and cleaning.


    And the roof vent has plexi glass louvers to keep the rain out.


    It will be a duplex with a removable divider make 2 4 x3 breeder coops for my husbands bantams.

    Next payday we hope to start on the runs. And hopefully decorate it so it isn't so plain!

    Very nice!

    Don't forget to add raccoon proof latches to all those doors and openings!
