Mizerly…

The dog shelter we built, many years ago, finally needed to be taken down.  We needed something new for the dogs.  What does a new dog shelter have to do with being “Mizerly”?  Should I say… thrifty… or cheap?  No… I prefer “Mizerly”…. WoodMizer-ly to be exact!

Having your own sawmill and wood supply is a helpful thing when you have a farm.

Without a trip to the big box store!

In 2 1/2 days my husband was able to mill and build a beautiful new dog condo and we didn’t pay anything for any of it. We had the metal sheeting dropped off here a couple years ago by someone who thought we’d use it for something eventually, and we had all the screws on hand.
