Betty's barn is finally done. The door to the feed storage is installed, two roll up blinds are added in the front and two are added in the other end of the barn. Drapes are hung on the side next to the fence on the left of the photo.
It took three days of work to move the 40+ rabbits into the newly reconstructed barn. Albert and Betty took apart the cages to change the bottom wires, then each cage was blow-torched and power-washed.
It feels so good to have a barn with totally cleaned cages. Just hope that the spiders won't work overtime to do the Halloween decoration too quickly.
The entire process took more than two months. During this period, California experienced a heat wave that lasted over two weeks. The temperature went to as high as 114 degrees. Rabbits went through a very stressful period of time. Albert and Betty were also stressed to the limit, both had sustained a few injuries from accidents.
Is it worth it? If asked this question a week ago, the answer probably would be a no due to the extreme difficulty. Now that it's done, everything is nice and pristine, it's certainly worth all the effort and work.
The series about Betty's barn reconstruction is done. It is hoped that our readers are not too bored with four days of posting with the same topic.
