When the "cats" away.....eeek

Yup.. Rosie has had visitors..

We've been spending all our free time on "Glinda's" build, only taking her out on randoms. Hub went in and saw some "spices" yesterday.. He was actually surprised I think...

(I believe he actually was hoping not to have to do a "full monty" on her as we are doing on Glinda)

I have a feeling I know what he's going to do next.

How have you all kept your stream not operating as a airbnnb??

Unfortunately Airstream seem to have cut most of the holes and transitions with a pocket knife and/or keyhole saw - ie they have hacked the holes larger enough for pipes/wires to pass through, not to the size of the pipe/wire. Then made no attempt to seal afterwards and certainly very heard of glands.

This means, without remediation whatever critters live outside can pretty much move it. This is fine if you live somewhere where there are no critters, but otherwise expect to go around all the pipe/cable entries and seal them up. I have seen a mouse 'run', almost without breaking stride, through a hole less than 1/2" across, so it is almost a case of 'if you can see light through a gap' a mouse (or chipmunk in your location) can get in.

Secondly do not assume you don't already have have to get around that issue as well; they don't come and visit then leave, they move in.
