Well the carpenters decided to take the week off and attend to their real jobs so I spent some time cleaning up around the job site. I had only a crying newborn and a frazzled wife to worry about so plenty of time to make some good headway. The first order of business was the elimination of two ground hogs that had taken up residence too close to the house-then I did cleanup work so we could have a nice grassy area around the shed.
