FYI metal beds or troughs try painting them white to keep cool and from rusting out there a good non-toxix paints & or coatings avail as for wood beds either coat and seal inside walls with either coatings or wrap the sides a couple of layers with white 12mil plastic it is very heavy duty it is mainly used or called shrink wrap alternate your vertical seams by 50 % and the iside of your box wont rot for a long time. Take care all
