About three years ago before I built my coop I installed eight posts as the basis of a run and fire wood storage area.

Last fall I installed the roof over the run area and added hardware cloth to enclose it (almost lol).

Over the past two weeks I finished the roof over the remaining area and am now moving the fire wood under cover. No more digging the wood out from winter's snow and ice.

I spent the afternoon closing predator vulnerabilities, both known and unknown, in the Run corners, nooks, crannies.Coop was built very tight.

It may be a mistake to wait to do this as one tends to forget where they are but it never hurts to carefully double check while one is in closeup mode. I have become more critical in deciding how big a hole I will allow, trying for 1/2" but sometimes that is difficult.

The pole shed is 12' by 40'ish and adjacent to the coop.

I no longer free run in an effort to eliminate NF mites which are prevalent in my area. My birds access the run areas (10' by 16', 3-4' high, under coop and 12' by 15', beside and part of) via a pop door and ramp.

A better photo.

Tarps for back of wood storage area?
I see them on the run and figure that's where your dominant winds come from?
No tarps on the back (north) of the wood storage area but yes on the run portion.

Our predominant winter weather comes in from the north west.

Tarps behind the wood itself may well be a very good idea.
