Been a little bit busy I guess. Can’t believe no posts in SO long!!

We spent a lot of the fall painting the house.

And also just trying to deal with all the pumpkins!

We also found time to take on a big new construction project!! A goat shed!!

We used leftover roofing but bought the cedar new. A bit posh for those goats–total cost about 500.00. It did turn out quite pretty I think. Alas, this picture highlights our pallet gate system–tied shut with binder twine no less. Guess that needs to get on the to do list.

We used what we learned from building the chicken coop, and are pretty pleased with how it turned out.

Wow, that looks great, have they tried it out yet?

The nice thing is that I can see into it from the house. They totally love it–esp. when there’s fresh chow in there!

I applaud you on your very colour co-ordinated wellies!

Thanks wingclipped! Not the safest thing to be painting in red rubber clogs–but it does look nice with the red maple, doesn’t it!! Alas, come spring I’ll be out there again, trying to finish up the job. Sigh!
