We usually post pictures of important house repairs (when I take the pictures) or pretty pictures of pretty houses (when my wife takes the pictures) but this time we're sharing something entirely different: goats! goats in every direction!
And a goat shed.
Mark Anderson, one of the handymen in our network of craftsmen, recently shared photos of a winter project on his mountain homestead. They were so interesting that we asked him to let us share them here.
Like any frugal farmer, Mark used as much reclaimed and inexpensive lumber as possible, including these old logs.
He used a winch to drag the logs in place, then hand-chiseled the ends where the beam will rest on the log post. Trust me, this is hard work!
Fortunately he had a few helpers. ("Here, let me hold that post up for you.")
"No, a little to the left."
Even though he was just building a goat shed, Mark made everything plumb and level, and braced it well against the goatly onslaught.
The goats seem happy...
...but Mark's even happier.
Do you have a building project in mind? Mark is an experienced carpenter and is available to build small deck additions and similar projects. He can also install interior trim and custom built-in shelving and cabinets... and goat sheds!
