Mike went out to the property, put the address out on the driveway post.   Started stripping the trash and walls out of the hunter’s shack.  There seems to be a rancid mouse infestation in the old walls.  Not sure that we will be able to use the building or not.  The smell of old rodent urine and feces is overwhelming, even soaking the walls with a 10% bleach solution has not cut the odor.  The building is also built unlike any other house shelter we were familiar with:  it was a pole barn that had been walled in and had a deck floor floated between the posts.  There was no foundation, the building has settled unevenly; there are cracks everywhere.
