If I'm not at work, out owling, watching the footie, down the pub or sleeping.......then the chances are recently you will have found me making Barn Owl boxes. Mostly alone but on several occasions Colin Green came over to offer a very welcoming hand. Marking out, sawing, screwing, painting and painting and even more painting has taken over my life. It started off as a labour of love but more recently it has started to get on my nerves as there just didn't seem to be any light at the end of the tunnel.....until now!
After what seems to of been hundreds of hours stuck away in my garage, finally this morning (Saturday 12th Feb) the second batch of 15 are ready for erection.
The "pyramid" of boxes before the erection starts, yes I know three of them are not quite ready, they need a final coat of paint and of course the entrance hole cutting out, that's a job for Colin (he's good at that), if he ever comes around again!!!
