The chicken shed

Well there is an eye sore on the farm. One I don't mention often. Ok at all. But it's here. One long ago we used it for chickens ..... But eventually gave up it was impossible to proof it ofpredators.
And with a whole house renovation, barn roof, garage roof, geo thermal heating, verious other sheds and out buildings to tend with. Our Maine cottage, the shop, the rental , the guest area , work, kids, grandkids you get the picture. It's at the very bottom of the list. It was even to painful to go around to the field side to look at it. From our farm side it's not too bad. As farm out buildings go. So today I went to really see and investigate, the condition. And the good news is it's in much healthier condition then I thought. It's actually very sturdy. Really needs a new roof for sure but the structure is surprisingly sound. So the wheels start turning......

So I have a new board on my Pinterest page !

Air bnb

Well this is so exciting for me! In September when we go to Maine we will be flying to DC then driving the next day to our place in Maine . So when we get to DC we will rent a car then drive for 5 hours and stay here! On this sail boat! We are both so excited to try air bnb. It will be the longest vacation so far. Hoping to take our time on the return trip to see some of the coast we have not. And New York and DC! I think I already love air bnb and may never stay in a hotel again! Enjoy your weekend . We are working on the building this week end and hope to squeeze in a garden tour. It's poring buckets here today!
