    Think shed with shelves all around the inside and some perches. You can include a fully covered outside space as well

    rule for size...

    Each section

    width and depth, open your arms, tips of your fingers have to touch 2 sides, turn 90 deg, tips of fingers touch front and front of nest boxes (they're fix to the back wall).

    height, raise arm, tip of finger touches ceiling.

    My loft is 10' x 16' divided into 3 sections. Its made from steal insulated panels. It is great during the summer, it is always cooler than outside. Each section has a window that is wired in with a small door to let them fly in and out of. The only problen I have is my windows are way too big (3foot square) and rain comes in.
