Our New Dog Shed

Hey neighbors!

We have been so busy the last month or so.  My daughter Modesty and I have been building a shed that we turned into a dog run area.  I purchased the kit from Lowes, they delivered it and we went to work.

A friend played the foundation for us.  Then Modesty (19), and I Started putting it all together.  And yes, we did it all!  My husband came out and assisted with holding the rafters in place and with placing the roof boards on, but Modesty and I did all the framing, nailing, placing screws, raising walls, etc.  We still have to shingle the roof, and are painting the shed, but overall we have finished the hard part.  We cut holes in the walls so the dogs can go in and out.  The inside is divided into 4 kennels, with a center walk thru.  We attached doors to hinges, so we can close the dog doors to keep them either in or out and to protect from rain and/or snow.  We put up the fencing for the kennels too.  We have an extension cord through the wall, to run the fan we have hung from the ceiling to circulate air.  We have heated bowls that will be plugged in for the winter.

I am so excited we have accomplished this much.  We are painting, and will be doing the roof soon.  We already have an electric outlet and a water supply right beside the shed.  We are all set up!  Or we will be when we finish.  I am so happy with how it looks.  I have included a few pics for you all to see!  I'll share some more when we are completely done.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
