Default New free loft some suggestions from pros

Hi just wanted some suggestions on more development from you guys on here if you wouldn't mind.
This is my first build and wanted some mor ideas on ledges and other things.
It's for my goshawk zeus any ideas would be appreciated.
It is 14.5 ft long and 12 ft wide plywood roof for 12 ft then open roof and front in security fence mesh. This is the first open front I've had so just wondering where to put ledges any advice would be appreciated I was thinking about plywoo with Astro turf at the back???
Regards dan

Hello Dan,
You might consider adding a double door, its sure nice not having to worry about you bird slipping by you when you enter and exit or if you just have a failure on getting one of the doors closed properly. I also like using shad cloth on the inside of the wire. I have never tried keeping a Gos in a wire enclosure without lining it with shad cloth fist but I could see having some feather damage. Good luck with your new setup. What kind of Gos are you molting?

Mitch

Cheers for the reply. He is a German x Finnish I've put up tight netting over the inside of the door so when I enter the opening is covered but I think a double door is a better idea👍🏻
And as for the netting for the bars it's next thing I'll do many thanks for the input
Regards dan
