Greetings from Fifty Shades of Green Acres!

Mr. Fifty Shades has been working on finishing up some projects.  The Mower Garage has been usable for a while but not complete.  Mr. Fifty Shades wanted to enclose the ceiling on the porch so the birds could not get in and make nests.  A handy new piece of equipment made that job much easier.

Here it is.  When I look at it, I think it looks like one of these…

But, Mr. Fifty Shades is not trying to fly.  He just wants to put up a ceiling on the porch.  Lifting the plywood above your head isn’t a cinch when you’re working on things by yourself.  So, this lift assistant machine makes this type of project a bit more doable.

It’s pretty nifty.  Now, the ceiling is in and a light fixture installed.

It looks great!

Yesterday work started on driveways to the shop.  It’s going to be so fancy that we’ll need to call it The Shoppe.

Finding someone to work on this job was a little challenging so we’re very happy that the work crew arrived.  They won’t be able to pour the concrete for a while due to rainy weather here.  We’re pretty sure they’ll come to finish, though, since they left their equipment here.

In other news, our new barred rock chicks are over four months old.  They grow up so quickly.  Sniff, sniff.  They are nearly as big as the other hens and should start laying eggs in a couple months.  Yay girls!

That’s it for now.

Until next time,

Fifty Shades of Green Acres Team
