Goat Construction Zone

The World’s Cutest Fainting Goats have been keeping up busy lately. In all of our spare time (hahahaha) we built them their ghetto fence and moved them to the farm. As I mentioned in the post where we described their moving day, Mina was beside herself when she realized the only shelter they had in their paddock with the ghetto fence was a couple of dogloos. We promised Mina that we would rectify this unfortunate situation as quickly as possible. True to our word we’ve been working on that the last few days in fits and starts. Mina definitely does not grasp this concept of a “real job” and I’m sure is wondering why we haven’t worked non-stop on building her some suitable housing.


Jason has been busy . . .


He’s measured . . .




. . . he’s made sure things were level . . .


. . . he’s chainsawed . . .



. . . he’s contemplated . . .


. . . he’s used the nail gun . . .




. . . he’s put on the joist hangers . . .


. . . and he’s currently in the process of shingling the roof.




I attempted to have a conversation with Jason today about non-structural things in regards to the goat housing. Jason is all concerned about the structural engineering but looks matter too right? It all started when I saw he had bought black shingles instead of red shingles.


Me: You bought black shingles?


Jason: Yes. So?


Me: This won’t match the other run-ins and barns. They all have red roofs, now this one is going to have a black roof. Shouldn’t we take these back and get red shingles?


Jason: silence


Me: Is there going to be a cupola on the roof like the other run-in sheds?


Jason: silence


Me: But all of the horse run-in sheds have cupolas.


Jason: silence


Me: We’ll at least put a weathervane on the roof, right?


Jason: silence


Me: We’re going to paint it white, right? Because all of the horse run-in sheds are white.


Jason: silence


Me: I feel like I’m talking to myself.


Jason: silence


Me: Well, this conversation has been very productive. I feel like we settled a lot of things.


Jason: silence


By putting my intuition at work what I have interpreted from this conversation is the black shingles won’t be replaced with red, there will be no cupola, probably not even a weathervane, and Jason isn’t too keen on painting the goat house white. But it is possible that I have completely misinterpreted Jason’s responses. I guess I will wait with baited breath to see the final product. Although it will undoubtedly be structurally sound, I’m thinking that as far as aesthetics go it will pair up nicely with the ghetto fence.
