we survived the rain.. it came down the easy way..
funny story of the day..joann is here - a potential recipient- and since marie was int he guest house with her dog, she ended up here int he house... she said she wanted to sleep with opal-- who could not go up the spsiral stairs-- and that is the last i knew about it untili got up at midnight -- there was an interesting lump next to opal -- i did not see how a person could be folded into that shape- but what do i know.. so i made myself some coffee .. at which time joanne appeared from upstairs ready to bed down on the big barker bed with opal-- i was certainly Glad she did not sleep in that peculiar lump shape.
now on the topic of insuation---
now that we have heat in the kennels-- and duct work going thru the loft.... i am thinking i should do something about the hay loft ceiling and get it cleaned up... it is july
haveing regular insulation is just not going to work-- too difficult to put up -- hiring a crew wold take months-- there is an agricultural insulation sort of bubble wrap in tinfoil which is not the same as the r19 fiberglass- but better than nothing and comes in 150 foot rolls the hay loft is 75 x 35 so the roof is probably 75 x 20 x 2 use that and add tyvek ( with the plain white side showing.....) couple staple guns and we could be done in 4 hours... then do real insulation over the kennels downstairs.
if anyone can come up with a logical reason of why not.. squeeek up.... or i will order it monday from farmtek.. http://www.farmtek.com/farm/supplies/prod1;;pg101382_101382A.html
annie organized excell to get a few donors to send chips to.. with hopes they share them.... marc said he could make us more-- i guess it is barbara that actually makes them--- ( on some machine that costs millions of dollars...)
ready to take another great leap forward.... with the floor on the nutt house..
( and get these pups on their way--- i think we have a litter due first week of august... we have not had a chance to do an ultrasound because she lives up in new hampshire.. so we HOPE we have a litter due...)
