    I do have 1" by 4 feet air intakes at both of the soffits (covered by 1/2" welded wire) and the ridge vent under the metal roof. Is this ok?
    The 4 windows are sliding lexan and can be opened a little or a lot. IMG_20190905_101534470.jpg IMG_20190905_101748886.jpg

    Make sure you cover the windows with 1/2x1/2 in hardware cloth. :)

    You should be able to see the welded wire stapled to the outside of the windows in a couple of the photos.

    Additionally, we buried 24" wide hardware cloth around the entire run stapled to the bottom 2 x 4. We have foxes and raccoons here in Western Mass.
