I build my goat sheds big enough to stand in.  My goats are short.  Doing something like this would maximize the goats' use of the tall space.  Great idea!  I'd add edges to each shelf and bedding on the shelves. www.oakhillfaintinggoats.com

How to Build a Goat Shed with a Loft Bed for Almost $0

How to Build a Goat Shed with a Loft Bed for Almost $0

Kid warmer: A 55 gallon FOOD GRADE plastic barrel. Cut a hole the diameter of a heat lamp in the top lid leaving enough to run 4 screws through the rim of the metal lampshade into the top of the barrel. Be sure the bulb won't be touching the plastic. Put a square of chicken wire under the bulb just in case it burst the screen would catch parts. Cut a door with a jigsaw. Secure to stall wall, add straw and babies. It also casts a nice glow for doing barn checks at night.
