support for mushroom logs

We got the support section of our new mushroom log station done today.

It will give us about 16 feet at 12 inches off the ground.

Do you think you will have time to get the skirting on this section before the logs go in?

Brian --- That's my goal. It definitely is a lot easier to add skirting before things get complicated up against the face of the trailer, and I also want to add some little raised beds at the four corners of the tower for scarlet-runner-bean growing for additional shade/humidity. I just wish I'd gotten smart and skirted in the areas where the porches are before those went in --- that's going to be the hardest part of the project to complete now!
