Tarp shelter remodel…

…prior to Winter weather!!

Granted, we still have temperatures in the nineties, with humidity, but “we” (three) tackled the remodel in mid-October. (And I need to grab the handymen while they are available!!) I have forty-three pictures of the day’s activities and will post them as “thumbnail.” You can click each picture to enlarge for greater detail. ~~ Before Jim and Roger arrived, I moved planters, etc., on the West side, and raked pine needles, and cones, on the East Side. Volumes of garden stuff removed from inside shelter. ~~ Why so many pictures? Because Lorraine thinks the process was interesting. “A picture is worth a thousand words.”
