The logs aged...and this spring we noticed the bottom part of the logs were starting to become rotten. Some bird most likely a woodpecker had quite a time with one of the logs.
We were not quite sure how we were going to fix it. Between Andy, Jen and Far Guy they came up with a solution.

New brick platforms for the logs to set on. The logs were cut off and the rebar cut off and ground off to make a level surface. This fix should last another 20 years! It was sprinkling when I took the photos.

Many Thanks to Andy and Jen for taking time out of their vacation week to help us with this project! We could not have done it without them. Thanks also to my other baby brother who had a whole pile of bricks from a construction demo in his equipment yard...I had my choice of colors of bricks...I chose the grey.
Miss Miney and Little Elvis have returned to their own home...we will miss them. The house seems quiet without them.
Odda still comes to visit...she was visiting yesterday...we are her safe place.
