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
