Couple of questions about shed conversion...

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I have a couple of questions about my shed conversion. 

We will not be felting the roof, but adding onduline. Do you add on top of wooden roof or instead of?

Ventilation, do I need permanent vents or ones that can be closed in cold weather?

Thanks! 

Happy weekend x

How many chickens are you getting?

I guess it would depend on the size of the shed (support/sagging?) but generally Onduline just goes on top of the shed, not wooden boards, as that way it provides ventilation.
Ventilation should be away from chicken roosting height so they're not in a draught. There are calculations you can do which are used for barns etc that tell you exactly what size you'd need.

I’d have a mixture of permanent and closeable vents if that’s possible.  You need ventilation whatever the weather but not drafts as Lewis says.
