Assembling the quailhouse
Over the weekend, we assembled most of the quailhouse. It was designed by David so that it consists of panels that could be joined together. There are 10 side panels (one is pictured above), a floor covered in mesh (to prevent vermin burrowing in) and a roof covered with corrugated, transparent plastic sheets to keep out the rain but let in the sun.
We started the assembly in one corner and worked our way out from there.
Ready now to add the roof.
There is to be a double door to prevent escapes. The door fits the space of one of the panels. In effect, it is a "porch" to the quailhouse - David is building it below.
And tonight, we will aim to attach the porch to the quailhouse.
