    Sorry for the delay in getting this posted. I completed the retrofitting of our wooden slat playhouse just in time for the pullets to come home on Sat. First, I put ODB inside all the walls, door, and window shutters:

    I also built an interior nestbox that is accessible from the outside:

    Here's what it looks like all buttoned up tight for nighttime:

    And my Pug enjoying some "chicken tv":

    The pullets are:

    White Araucana - Popcorn (chicken)
    Red Araucana - Omelet
    Speckled Sussex - (chicken) Pot Pie
    Silver Wyandotte #1 - (chicken) Noodle Soup
    Silver Wyandotte #2 - (chicken) Boullion

    Enjoy!

    Nice looking conversion. One thing I may need to point out and wont be that difficult to do. You may want to consider chinking the gaps in the exterior logging. If you are unsure as to what chinking is you should google it. There are several different materials you could use.
