Of course we can't do anything in the pasture without the approval of the "girls". They had to be chased away many times because they kept trying to put their two cents in. Carlotta said, "are you sure that is going to be big enough"? Emily wasn't sure that it was going to be tall enough for her friend Fuzzy the llama. Oh, too many cooks in the kitchen.
It starts out so simple. We used lumber from a local lumber yard, Parker Lumber. They have rough cut wood that is actually 2x4's. Did you know that a 2x4 is not really a 2x4? I didn't know that. We are getting ripped off if you ask me. Older structures are built of true 2x4's. Our old barn has real 2x4's. Oh, and our house too. It is 160 years old and the wood came from our homestead. How cool is that?
Even the turkeys and hens have to approve.
We had to stop due to loss of daylight. All four sides framed. Not bad for starting in the afternoon.
"Hey, where you goin? I will bring the next board. I want this done tonight!"
I think we have really bossy sheep.
