The cube was very easy to set up. It is also extremely easy to clean the trays when they are lined with newspaper. My chickens took to it immediately with no interruption in their laying schedule, and seem to really like it! We really appreciate the ease of use and cleaning.
We live in an extremely cold climate, and will wheel it into an enclosed building for the winter. For those in more temperate areas, there is no reason why you couldn't use it year-round. Very nice antipredator features too.

I have owned the Eglu Cube and the Classic for four yrs now. I love everything about it. Omlet has thought of everything. So easy to clean.
Looks CUTE in the backyard. No upkeep. It has not faded. I have never had to replace any part.
I am looking into the Beehaus now....
Yes - this coop is everything Omlet says. It's very portable and easy to clean. Plenty big. We have 7 full size girls in it. They have a fenced in area during the day and we close them in the Eglu cube and and it's extension run at night. They went into their enclosure on their own just like they said, after a few days. The waterer stays nice and clean, and the food server too. The girls are as happy as larks. Their eggs are nice and clean in the egg laying area. We've never seen such a well thought out, easy to use for people and hens alike, coop. Well worth the price. Well done! Thanks so much!
We purchased this coop about 9 months ago and it's terrific. Works well, cleans easily and will never "rot" like wood. Highly recommended! While initially more expensive than a coop built from scrap materials, the Eglu will last far longer, look better and be easier to clean. Safer for the chickens, too! The low run requires a fair amount of bending over when you want to replace wood chips there, so we're planning to build a longer, taller, enclosed and covered run which will be drier in rainy Seattle.

My 6 ladies have been in their Eglu cube with the extended run for about 6 months now, since they were 3 months old. They love it, I love it, and it's held up perfectly. We have moved the whole shebang around the yard about 5 or 6 times, always successfully. It's easy to keep really clean - with the one caveat that you have to bend down pretty far to get into the pen in order to rake out the end under the coop. If I had tons of money, I'd put the coop part into a human-height run, to make it easier to clear. But the coop itself just washes out with a hose, as do the perches. All in all, I'm delighted. It's well worth the cost to me to be able to get it so clean. I can't imagine that you could get a wood coop anywhere near as clean.
