Kennel Update: K3 Complete (almost)

Scout‘s inside room is now secure and accessible by humans (I mean aside from getting down and crawling through that hole in the wall – which I have done).  The building is still pretty crowded with lumber and stuff, so getting a good camera angle is difficult.
 
I still need to find the channels that go on either side of the door hole so a sheet metal clad wooden panel can slide up and down in them to close off and open up the doorway.  The channels are shaped like a lower case “h”, the panel rides in the three sided channel, the flange bolts to the wall.  A cable (to prevent chewing it in half) goes up to a pulley on the wall, that splices to a rope that runs out front to a cleat.  I pull the rope to open the door and tie it off to keep the door open.
 
I cleared out and swept the next section.  I need to go get a load of block, then can get started enclosing Blade’s room: K2.
 
I finished the day by organizing my parts box.  This will save time as I build the next panel: no more sifting through random parts looking for the one I need.  I also put away all the wrenches, the pliers, wire cutters and such I used in building the chain link panel.  Time to go back into masonry mode, those tools will just be in the way and maybe get lost in the shuffle.  Tis better to straighten up before moving on.
