I've been clearing up the debris left over from building the house to make the insurance company happy and figured it would take just as long to use a pile of concrete blocks I'd been saving for a dog house than it would be to move them, plus the fact that having to move them in the first place seems pretty stupid but anyways I moved the current dog house and pile of straw to the side a bit and dug an area about 6 by 9 feet in between all the trees near the top of the pen. I wanted it to be surrounded by tree roots because dogs like to dig under things and I am trying to make things low maintenence if possible. I had a bunch of used block that had mortor on them so I laid out a big rectangle with them yesterday and poured 8 bags of concrete mix around them. I'll dump the broken bricks and stuff in the middle of this and then cover it with sand mix I can make with the mortor mixer and that will put them about 6 inches about the ground around them.

When I poured the driveway I curved it to collect the rain and send it in through the gate so it was good timing because we just had a frog choker and I went out and the water was a river around the future house but the floor was well above the water level. When its done the floor will slope so I can wash the thing out and the roof will come of so I can put hay in, and I'll get some gravel spread around between it and the gate. The water fans out pretty well and then collects at the bottom of the pen taking all the dog debris with it and settles into the ground instead of running into the lake and get's turned into grass.

I have a weeping willow down there that does pretty well...
