I'll be pulling out most of what I can and putting it in the shop, so I can work on the bus... I'll keep the washer/dryer out(it's out now), and pull the bisagged refrigerator (28.8 cubic foot) back out... It'll eventually make its way to my son's garage apartment, then I'll pick up the 9.9 cubic foot fridge from Home Depot soon. I need floor space, not fridge space and I don't use ice & water in the door anyway.
The mobile home is still on site and hooked up, but it's about 60 yards from the shop... But, there is a toilet & sink in the shop, just no shower! So, I'll be hooking my Eccotemp L5 up outside in my metal makeshift shower stall like I had at last location.... I'll just have to remember to get dressed before I get out of the shower, since I'm the end house of a neighborhood.
I guess I could wear my swim trunks, then remove them in the shower, and put them back in. Total PITA, but I'll make it work... Since I'm on concrete all the way around. No different than showering outdoors at the state park...right? Grey water is grey water!
Regarding the pigeons... The walk through door is currently MIA, but I've got one in storage I'll be putting in this week... Another one of those things that's moved around with me the last 5 years.
But before I left today, I wrapped a plate in aluminum foil and tied a piece of paracord to it and hung it over the door so it would blow in the crossflow breeze... I spot-lighted in the shop when I got back... Lone pigeon and his booty call are nowhere to be found! I think the aluminum foil worked.
I'll have to post a pic of the I-beam and creosote train trestle timber construction of this shop building!
