Raising the Roof

Greetings from the FROZEN North Woods! It is currently 28 degrees and while a brief warm up will bring rain instead of snow, it is back to brisk temperatures for Thanksgiving which means ice skating with the grandkids is not outside the realm of possibility.

While my last post feature the first episode of our PredatorPee Unleashed video series(more to come soon), this post is more of an update on the goings on at Winterberry Farm – the PeeMan’s homestead. Before the wife and I headed south for our 40th anniversary celebration trip, I had a few things to get done around the property. My major project of the fall season has been the installation and completion of a heavy duty metal and fabric building meant to house the boat, airstream, chickens, the Scout – oh yeah and maybe some pee related stuff.

The project involved the erection of several metal hoops and then the reinforcement of said hoops. I NEVER EVER want to see another sheet metal screw in my life. I had shards of hot metal flying back toward my face with every single installation. Anyway, while I usually tend to be a loner when it comes to construction projects(I do it my way and I don’t want to have to explain it or answer a hundred questions), the actual installation of the building cover was definitely not a one man job. So, I called in a few select helpers, constructed my own winches and voila got that baby up and over in no time flat. Actually, my daughter was quite impressed that it worked right the first time. I usually get the job done, but not without a little or a lot of trial and error.

Anyway, now Brown Betty and the Amish hen have taken up residence in their new digs along side my metal beauty and some other of my “projects.” Here are some pics. Hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving! Until I find more words. . .The PeeMan
