New Kennels Project

 

The hounds are settled in their new home at Jill Wade’s Wishful Thinking Farm. 

She has more than 100 acres of fields and woods for walking out, and many more acres available nearby.

It’s a 30×40 foot building with a concrete floor and a convenient garage door.   We’ll have a large outdoor yard as well but the delayed and then rainy spring has delayed it.

See the latest status and scroll down to see how much work it has taken to get where we are now.

The Big Fence begins

The exterior paint and trim looking good

The interior is truly beautiful!

 

How it began.

 

 

 

 

 

March 24 Update.  Ceiling repair and insulation and new roof done.

Next is new windows and the hound access doors.  Roof covered with snow else I would have proudly photographed it.

March 28 update

New windows in and you can (almost) see the new roof.  Lots of metal for recycling and our new kennel panels almost ready to move inside.

March 31 update.  Kennel panels moved inside and ceiling painting almost finished.  Ran power for well pump
