Didn’t work on the actual house today, but I did finally get the time to put together most of the box in which it’s going to reside (to protect it from sunlight, dust, unidentified flung objects, and dog tails & teeth).
This was created with the help of my 85-year-old neighbor who was a carpenter all his life and has all the tools you could ever want in his workshop!
Still have one of the tops to attach on.
Now that I see it in the context of my garage…it’s awfully big, huh? But then…the house has two more stories and a tower and a porch that need to be added on to what’s already there.
Cider got to pose with the box in the photos because he was a good boy and sat waiting in the yard while I was in the garage most of the afternoon.
That and because he really, REALLY wanted to go for a walk and he thought maybe if he sat still for the photos we’d finally leave for that walk.
