Then and now

I have resisted posting lately because all I can talk about is building and chickens which I am sure must bore you all to tears so today I am going to post about………. you guessed it……….chickens and building šŸ™‚

Our current projects have been to get the cottage completed, build dog kennels and improve our chicken coops, in between house improvements on the prefab as we will be moving to the main house near the end of Feb and need to do some modifications to be able to let the prefab house out.

My clever husband made me some mesh windows and a door which we have built in. Now the genets can come visit at night without too much disruption and chicken murders. We have ordered new fencing which should arrive next week.

We hope to have the dog boarding kennels complete by march and up and running for the April holidays. Each dog will have its own kennel and run and then there will be a larger run where they will get turns to stretch their legs daily.

In order to save costs Bob’s and I are doing a lot of the work, buying all the materials, and project managing each project. We would however not have got anywhere without the help and hard work of Alf Skea and his team on the cottage, Willem Otto and his team on the fencing, and of course our help, Victor and Thabo who have been digging and mixing concrete till they dream about it.
