I ended up making the main aisle of the barn a kidding stall by closing the front doors so there were actually three kidding areas in the barn. Which was good as I had put Lily in the impromptu area just about an hour and a half before she popped out her kids last week and then used it for rearranging other goats for Penny's kidding yesterday.
Anyways, even with the barely adequate room in the barn, I still have one more pregnant goat. But I'm actually going to get a little bit of a rest now since she's not due until the 21st of March.
So instead of building a "real" lean-to on the side of the shed, I made myself a hoop house using some salvaged tarp, four t-posts, a bent cattle panel and stuck the blue barrels underneath it to help support it from the weight of baby goats wanting to jump on the hoop structure (imagine that).
