How easy would this be to convert to a coop? It’s made of cedar and we’re in Florida so my plan was to paint it and build some sort of flooring. Anyone have an tips for success? Is it worth it? Price is $150.

I need to get the demensions of the playhouse but I think it would be perfect for my 10 gals.
I'll guess it's about 4x4'...nowhere near big enough for 10 birds.
Might depend on your run and climate and....what are your 10 birds living in now?
Also....
Where in this world are you located?
Climate is almost always a factor.
Please add your general geographical location to your profile.
It's easy to do, (laptop version shown), then it's always there!

They are in a prefab coop that roosts are smaller. My current coop is too small, but I’m not sure how much room exactly they need more since they haven’t been pecking or bothered by the snuggly fit. There is still empty space in my small coop. They free range in our backyard during the day and the coop is only for sleeping and laying, haven’t began laying yet.

I’m east coast Florida. I’ll add that info after this thank you.
