    Our new duck house my husband built. He is building a run for them right now so they will be safe when I cannot watch them free range in the yard. I cannot wait!!! [​IMG]

    Any opinions on if you think it will need more ventilation? There are two cut outs for cross ventilation and then there are small spaces both at the top and bottom for more but do you think we need to put more?

    That's very cute!

    You may want some vents toward the bottom so it can draw fresh air in and vent the old air and heat out the top.

    awesome house.....the ventilation needs to bet at the top, all the way at the top to let the hot moist air out. maybe an ope ridge vent ??
