Update: Pigmy Goat Shelter

Tom found an awesome deal on a dog kennel that looks to have been run over by a forklift so needless to say it needed some re-squaring - lol! We backed up the truck and used the hitch and a cinder block as a vice to re-square then I tweaked each wall section into a single plane with blocks and body weight. His tenant assembled it in the back near the original box I built and I grabbed a few hundred feet of fencing and some posts from the bottom of the property for me & Tom to set the perimeter run with. He also had a stripped door panel I was able to throw some fence on to use as a gate. The rest is history...

Wood Stove Dryer & Chimney Cap

After the rain re-rinsing the laundry the cool morning gave me the opportunity to dry them using the wood stove :) I also used the break in the rain to go up to the roof and put a cap over the stove pipe...

Siding, Stove, Screens, Boots & A/C...

Over a period of two days I finished the siding, trimmed in the A/C, received built & installed my new wood stove, screened in a double window, built and screened a screen door, and also slipped repairing my boots into the mix :) Tags: tiny house,off-grid,DIY,D.I.Y.,do it yourself,how to,frugal,free,nature,natural,van life,construction,wood stove,A/C,screens,boot repair,chimney pipe,siding,clapboards
