    Very nice. You might want to raise the nest boxes up off the floor and add additional ventilation.

    www.shedwindowsandmore.com Great place and they have humans that answer the phones. As far as the glassboard I just googled it and then searched for distributers in my area. It is pricey, but for me it was worth it. I paid 43.00 for it.

    You're the best!!! Build date got pushed next Saturday:( But now I am having someone build it. I am doing an 8x8 shed style coop now, so my parents can use it as storage after I move. Anyway I will look into the windows. Thanks again.
