Mine hasn't been used in many years. I would have to search it out.

Very nice looking coop. I do have a question though. How much snow might that coop have on it ? Would a metal roof be a better choice ? Even the nesting box lids might be lighter using metal lids ?
I know metal is kind of ugly compared to hand split cedar... The cedar would be beautiful as a siding alone.
