It has been a bit of a hectic couple of days. In addition to working on this project I've had to deal with some other issues. One of those was a meeting regarding proposed standards of animal care regulations being written by the State Veterinarian's Office of the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation. You can read about my input in that meeting in today's issue of the Fairbanks Daily News Miner. So much for my most recent foray into the sewage pit that passes for modern politics and bureaucracy.
Back to the fun stuff. The first step in my new equipment shed was to clear the site. This shed is going to be situated along the west perimeter of the dog yard, as it will be convenient to the house so machines can be easily warmed during cold weather. It does need to be far enough from the house to ensure that snow sloughing from the roof doesn't bury a corner of the shed or make the passageway to the dog yard impassible. It will probably be easier to show you the new layout as the project progresses.
Here is what I had to start with:
|In the beginning there were weeds, equipment and stuff in the way.|
So, here is what things looked like this morning:
|The shed on blocks, ready to move.|
|The fate of the shed was literally up in the air.|
Given that the shed has been standing for well over a decade on a wooden frame work elevated on concrete blocks, and nothing else for a foundation, it held up surprisingly well through the move.
|The shed on the trail|
|Location of new pole barn ready to survey|
Until then, there are other tasks to keep me occupied.
