Dryer sheets help keep the mice away, too. I have some tied to various cables and whatnot under the hood of my tractor and haven't had a mouse nest under there since.
You haven't lived 'til you've started up a tractor and had a mama mouse come scurrying across the floorboard with a bunch of pink babies clinging to her butt. It's like some kind of alien spider.
such a funny visual I have right now.

Congrats Beth! With a view like that it must be a pleasure to get up every morning. Wishes for solid construction, quick occupancy, and many happy years in your new abode. Or would that be adobe? Perhaps an adobe abode? Oh I so crack myself up! A party of one.

best of luck with the successive phases of the building of your new home, beth. what a beautiful widescreen vista you have as a view from your 'adobe abode' to-be--the mountains, the big sky, wow....:)
