Looking good Kaz, but you shouldn’t have wasted your time, you should have put a post in both corners of your backyard [back fence] then two poles up against the house & just covered the whole area, so that you just step out of the back door into the aviary complex… :o

That thought crossed my mind but I thought those King Charles Spaniels are very accommodating dogs.

They would eat a budgie in the blink of an eye ...my dogs are hunters, budgies, birds, mice, rats...anything meaty :D

Well Monday looks like the day we begin erecting the new birdroom :) We have had to change the door to the right and window to the left because there wasnt enough room for the sink and cupboards. Will try and get photos on Monday :P

We didnt get finished today as my husbands friend who was helping was only here for half the day. We have completed three walls and erected the four. Have to finish off the front, window and doors, and put on the roof. I had three leadlights to make today as well as being a builders offsider, and nurse....so thats all we could do for today....more tomorrow.

Looking good Kaz, we have been having lots of showers here also & now today the rain has really set in. Has just moved down from Queensland, we were lucky but, it was forecast for Sunday, but it turned out quite a nice day, so got our local show over. Was our first for a few years, only got about 300 birds, not all Budgies. Hoping for better next year.

You must be upsetting the local termites Kaz, nothing for them to chew on…LOL..

More work done today on the new birdroom. Nearly there. The whole roof went on today amongst other things. We have yet to hang the doors at the front, and add the gutters and trim pieces. The far right end will become a set of folding doors that will go out into the aviary ( new flights to be made ) and then another flight off to the right of that.

Soon will tile the floor, insulate and line the walls and then fit out the interior. Where's Daz when I need him :lol::D

The dogs helped too. Everytime Kens mate Gary would bend down to pick something up he got a big sloppy kiss from Maggie or Cricket :lol:

Raining here today...

The first thing I did was get the umbrella and go see if the new birdroom leaks. It does. Through what looks like a dodgy nailhole on the roof sheeting...that will need sealing. Leaks under the edges all round, but I havent sealed that yet, so thats fine for now. :)
