Today saw Stuart and I taking a departure from our usual work and turn our hand to ‘carpentry’ as we began building a new shed in the office garden to expand our storage.
Over the years we have amassed a vast array of equipment and whilst we have two sheds, both have reached their capacity. We were fortunate to be given a huge amount of timber by Dougie Dunsmuir that just so happens to be perfect for constructing the framework of our shed, many thanks Dougie.
Hiding beneath the timber was this attractive looking slug which I believe is an Arion rufus, large red slug.
We finished up shortly before five o’clock, having completed the base and side panels we left reasonably happy with the progress we’d made.
Whilst this was a welcome change from our day to day work, tomorrow we’ll have to spend time in the office catching up with various bits and pieces. Water levels kiboshed our electrofishing plans for the beginning of this week, so this was an ideal opportunity to get ahead with this project.
