2005-Oct - Our Place - Rat Proofing the perimeter
After spending $500 and 30 hours of my time to replace the airconditioning ducting destroyed by the rats - I decided it was imperative to rat proof the perimeter of our roof.

The Problem - big gaps for rats & possums


Solution - 80 metres of pine planking


Cut to profile


and then in to shingles


Carefully fitted shingle by shingle


to fill the gap


That's a lot of work


and a lot of work


and a lot of work


Then cover all the scruffy bits with fascia


and paint the fascia "Deep Indian Red"


Leave temporary gap at possum access point


and at the native rat access point
