these are a result of a addition to the existing shed which became a coop.The coop is elevated and the nest boxes come chest high on the outside and are at ankle and knee level inside. There are 6 nests in this setup. Paint will come with better weather. Goal was for wife to not need to go inside for any reason.

That's very thrifty. Are they on metal tracks or just in grooves. How'd you attach it o the coop?

I bulit the frame and added the sheet stock sides as pieces. I calked edges as protection from drafts and leaks. The bottom edge sits on a anchored rail like a deck board id attached to a reg house then the top has bolts through the frame and in to the wall inside with 2x4 across to distribute the weight


I cut the holes in the wall after to be sure it was in the right place and then used dadoed 2x2 to trim the entry for saftey to the birde. I shingled once on and used a drip edge upside down glued on then caulked heavy. No leaking yet
