Please help. I always overthink things; and I know this isn't rocket science. So, here goes. I am building a storage building - chicken coop - rabbit hutch - workshop - garage, all in one. I am gonna try to post some photos. I am in the final framing stage; so, I can still make limited changes. The coop area is 6 x 8 and will lead into a 200 sf run area. I plan on having 6-8 chickens. Outside Outside looking into coop. 4 ventilation holes at top (will be screen covered); 2 on each side. Inside the coop will be 4 nesting boxes. This is the cutout for this and a window. There is a linoleum floor for preservation and cleanup. So, my questions are: 1. Looking at the last photo, the roosting area will be at the right. How far off the ground should the roost be? 2. Can I use the deep litter method? How much material initially on the floor? Can I put a poop box also under the roost using sweet PDZ? Or, is that overkill. Since this is inside a larger building, I definitely want to keep the smell down. There will be a powered attic fan. 3. Any other suggestions for this coop? Should I panel the inside to help preserve the studs from pee spray? I don't want to be replacing wood every few years. Insulation? I live in Western NC. Mid teens are normal every so often; single digits maybe 2-3 times a year. The ceiling will be covered to keep any smell from permeating the rest of the building (hopefully). I'm sure there will be more Q's later. But this will start. Please help.
