Took a 12 room Heath Plastic House, converted the entrances to Conley II, added 1/2" Styrofoam for top floor ceiling, deep cavities 6x6x12, slapped decoys up, might have a chance now!!!

Good Luck Zag!
Last year I modified a Coates alum. house and added cork for insulation, 1 pair moved in and raised 5. There were empty THG's available too, so I felt real good about the pair choosing the modified house over the gourds.
