    Yes, definitely seal that particle board floor and roof with a good latex, exterior paint. I'd probably also lay down some linoleum over the painted floor or look into using a large plastic tray liner.

    I got two gallons of rubber roof "paint" cheap from a hardware store that was closing down. I painted my floor and partway up the walls with that. Added some bedding and tossed in some hens.
