If there is anyone in the Baton Rouge, Denham Springs, Gonzales, New Roads area, I need help getting an already put together Trio house up.
It involves putting in a ground stake, replacing the rope, adding one clip for a door so it stays closed, that's missing, and attaching a new rope cleat to the bottom section of the pole.
I have all the new parts, I just need help getting it in the ground.
If anyone can help, or knows someone in the area that knows how to do this, please call me, leave a message if I'm not home.
I will gladly pay someone to help me get the house up.
My phone number is 225-344-7912
Thanks,
Yvonne

Yvonne. I could give you a hand with it if you need. I live in Prairieville and am in Baton Rouge almost daily for my business. Feel free to give me a call and we can set something up. Matter of fact I'll be going to BR today.

New Roads always makes me think eating at Satterfield's while looking out at False River.

Martin Colony History: Start 2009 with one pair. Upgraded from S&K houses to two Trendsetter 12's with gourds beneath in 2013. I have experienced job, pet, and parental losses since '13. The Purple Martins lift my spirits and remind me how life continues forward by flying their little selves from Brazil back to my yard. As one forum person once told me, chin up DebA, look at the martins. Danger all around but yet they soar in the sky without a care in the world.

Just love this thread. Nice going guys.
