Llama Shed…

The llamas have been in need of a bigger, better shed for quite some time now.  So Randy gathered up some reclaimed wood and got to work on a “new” shed for the girls.

The only lumber we had to buy were 2 4×4.  The rest was reclaimed from a fairly new shed that blew down and Mom and Dad’s in a storm.

He got it all framed up in a day.

Moving it to its new home was another story, but in the end the two of us (a tractor, a pickup, and a car hauler) got it moved safe and sound.

I was joking with Randy that the llamas, being the high maintenance, sassy creatures they are were a little disappointed in getting a modular home when they saw it roll in on a trailer, but they will be so thankful for it when the big hail and rains come.  For now they come up into the lots to a building up there, but once this has tin on it they will be able to stay out in the pasture and not have to come all the way to the house if a storm rolls in.

He did a great job and saved us so much money not having to buy lumber.  It was a lot more work for him pull the boards and propanel apart, but I am so grateful for the extra time he took to save us a lot in the end.

Adopting one child won't change the world; but for that child, the world will change.

I am the wife to my wonderful husband and joint care giver to the many animals we have acquired on our small farm here on the prairie. This is a bit about our life on our farm. We are striving for simplicity and self-sufficiency, determined to become debt-free, trying to live in tune with the natural cycles of this earth, and challenging ourselves to transition to a diet based on traditional foods. It isn't always easy, and we don't always succeed, but it is a fun learning process. Join us as we stumble through learning how to provide for ourselves, get off the treadmill, and work toward a simpler way of life.
