So, we had a lovely little screened in porch with cedar panels put onto a 10 by 10 deck off the livingroom back door.
Here's how Charles constructed the step between soil and porch.
We could tell that a furry friend was interested in nesting under the porch, so Jon dug down below the foundation level and put in another $50 piece of cedar to keep the animals out.
I added a bunch of decent size stones and they dug under and around those. So, Jon's next step was bricks anchored with stakes, making it impossible for any animal we knew of to get underneath.
This morning I was sitting on the deck with my first cup of coffee and my iPod listening to frogs, crickets and internet radio. I heard stones clunking against wood and quietly looked down in time to see a black and white fuzzy backside digging and slithering under the porch.
Now what? Any suggestions?
Update Aug 30 - Last night Jon set a live trap with a banana. This morning we have a baby possum in the live trap but no skunk. The baby possum will be relocated to a nearby creek.
