Are the post set into the ground? If not you may want to tie it to the ground somehow, as narrow and as tall as it is a small wind could blow it over during a storm.
Looks like you are doing a good job, and I am passing along info I learned the hard way.

If it were me, I'd add a section the same size as what you have on the side without nest boxes. Bigger is better.

Thank you for the info, actually due to space and weather if on just a foundation and or leggs, i took that into consideration, there will actually be anchors on each side ( front and back)the leggs are down about 8 inches or so,. I anted more room for the outdoor pen/run and didn't want the area consumed with just the house.

thanks for the input, much appreciated !
