This is the start of the project after the pieces were dragged out of the bush. Unfortunately, most of the 4x4's were slightly bent so getting them back into square was a challenge.
Here she sits. The project was called off for 2 days due to an early May blizzard. 6 inches of snow, everything wet and too cold to work bare handed. The snow melted, but the wood is still too wet for staining.
I switched to the other big project for the year.
This will be our expanded hen/brooder house. It has to be completed by June 1 as our chicks show up June 4th. I will need a couple of days to regulate the temperatures inside. How is it that whenever you want to put a footing, there is always a big tree root in the very spot(s) that they must go?
I will also be doubling our hay shelter in back as we lost about a dozen bales due to moisture last year.
Always lots to do on the Acreage!
