:hehe::hehe::hehe: I just LOVE how the birdies kept inspecting the progressing work! And the one pic where B. Scooter sits on the tradesman's finger looks as if he's discussing details with him! :lol:

haha, I never thought about using that. I guess if it's safe for toddlers to eat it's not too bad for the birds too. :hehe:

Re: Martine and Pip, I found the GreyHouse plans!

Wow I was just thinking this morning that I needed to try and find your posts about the GreyHouse! :D Thank you for taking the time to post them all! It looks like something both the birds and the bunny would love. Hmm maybe once I get rid of the end table in the living room I can make room for something like this...:cool1: It truly is amazing.
