Looks a lot like what I built for the rabbits Converted the old playhouse. Now the rabbits are gone the wife wants it extended for chickens next year.
A few things I learned - MDF is no good outside, but exterior ply (sometimes called marine ply) is great.
To stop the foxes fix strong mesh to the base of the coop and extend it 12" into the grass as a border all the way round. Peg it down to keep it in place until the grass roots through it. When the fox digs it digs at the base of the wall it wants to go under - it can't dig through the mesh so as long as the mesh is firmly fixed to the coop you're safe.
