The first gigantic order of business (besides the permit) is housing. We had an old mews here I built for falconry back in 1996. But back then arsenic was still used to treat lumber, so we didn't use treated lumber. Needless to say it needed essentially a total rebuild.
Hein has put a lot of time into it in the past month or so, and I've helped some on my days off. We hope to finish it in the next several days if all goes well.
