I know many of you have been around at some point the last 8 months. We got the go from Washington County over a year ago. We FINALLY could move forward on the construction of our new kennel.
Building ALWAYS takes longer than expected. Our situation is no different.
Construction has been kind of fun to watch. When they poured the gigantic slab of cement last fall, it was overwhelming.
That slab would have made a great basketball court!
Projects like this always make my head spin.
Derek is a licensed contractor. Listening to the engineers/contractors as they were speaking a language (I clearly did not know) was always a treat.
I’m glad Derek can speak a second language.
Now that the siding is on the outside and all the drywall is hung. Samantha and I are in charge of painting the inside.
She has been such a hard worker.
Madelyn took Samantha to the store and she found some red cowboy boots.
We let her know if she earns half the money, we can get those “Footloose” boots.
She has been painting with me that last few days. I have been very impressed with her diligence. She painted all the nail holes in all of our base boards. That is no small task. She has almost earned enough money. ($25.00)
I’m sure she will be sporting her new fire feet soon!
But what makes me happy is that Samantha will be able to walk through the halls of our kennel for years to come and remember her part of building our family business.
We wanted to have the kennel finished a few yesterdays ago. Things just don’t go as planned.
We hope that by the end of July, we can show you a facility that will bring you peace when you leave your furry four legged family member with us.
We want it to feel like their other home.
Thanks for all your support with our next big step in our pet world.
Who knows, maybe when we have emptied the current dog space …maybe we might start kenneling cats :0)
Now wouldn’t that be an interesting idea.
