Bobby will make sure stuff gets made for animals, carpentry. Feed boxes, brooding boxes, fencing etc… for animals. Bobby tells Erica or others to make lists or just ask him. He is officially the builder for animals.

Kaya and Alicia want to be maintenance bottom liners.
Kaya talks about how that could work, and what it entails.

Sasha wants to take care of Garden tools, not carpentry tools.

Systems of organizing need to be done for the carpentry tools.
