The one negative I didn't see mentioned with tankless is the loss of emergency water storage. After going tankless, we got two 55 gal. emergency water barrels. But that isn't a big deal.

I agree with Karen at the Artofdoingstuff, and it is possible to keep a coop clean, nice looking, and not smelling. Living in the city close to neighbors, you kind of have to. I have had my coop for almost 3 years, 20 feet from my back door in an urban neighborhood. I do clean under the roosts pretty much daily and the rest of the coop every few weeks to once a month. It still looks pretty good, minus a few spots of paint that have been chipped. Photos that were taken of the coop when it was already in use for 2 years, were just used in a new book on chicken coops, "Guide to Building Chicken Coops." Therefore, used coops, that house well cared for chickens, can still look pleasant after years of use.
Now This is a Chicken Coop!
