    We are going to use an existing building for goats. It has plywood flooring which I know is not ideal. What should I put over it, on it, etc to help prevent urine soaking in, smells, and future rot? Thank you!

    And what about the walls. Should I do anything to them to make them last longer? Thanks

    Plywood will rot really quick, certainly remove it, my floor is just dirt and we just let the bedding pile up until it needs cleaning, once in a while we add gravel on the dirt to raise it up, my goats like to chew on and eat wood, so be aware they may gnaw on your shed.
