Homestead Improvements

It's Spring and that means we're hopping here on the 'stead to make any planned improvements for the year before the weather turns too hot.  We got a lot accomplished this weekend.  One of the things we did was to cover the area between the existing bunny housing and the turkey pen.  This will keep that area cooler in the summer, drier in the winter and will allow me to hang additional bunny caging so we'll have room for mommas and litters.  Yay!

This is the area we wanted to cover.  We've been covering this space with a tarp for shade every summer for the last few years.  Time to do something more.

Rafters are in and now it's time to send our resident Monkey Boy up to install the metal.  He's half Monkey...on his Father's side.

And he's up!

Metal's on and look at all this great space we have to use now!  With all the recycled materials we were able to pull from our stash, this addition only cost us $24!!

And, while we are on the subject of bunnies....gratuitious baby bunny shot!!  Oh, and cute kid, too!
