New digs for the pigs
A huge winter storm is on it's way, and the three
little pigs decided to destroy their straw bale house.
So this weekend a new house was made of wood. We all worked on it and built it from start to finish in 5 hours. Not bad for no plans. Of course it has open tailed rafters ~ a must on this farm. As with the chicken coop, we built it at my husband's shop and then had to transport it. It got bigger and heavier as we went along.
Then we had to figure out how to get it in the pig pen. Luckily it was just narrow enough to slide between the fence posts.
But first, we had to corral the pigs because, believe me, you don't want to chase them around the yard. I speak from experience on that!
Then the guys took down part of the fence,
And what did the three
little pigs do?
They started chewing on the house! There are teeth marks and mud all over it and I haven't even painted it yet. I am now convinced that there was a conspiracy in the Three Little Pigs story. The pigs destroyed their own houses and pinned the blame on the poor wolf! We may need a brick house soon.
