What a week!  Here is the house we are staying in now; wicked views:

Looking back over the fence to our place.

each person gets a pile of clothes

the girls get the bunk room

and the garden at home grows

rosemary, sage and thyme

cavolo nero, broad beans and potatoes

Cladding!! Yeah!!!

we will be able to pick our figs from the deck!


playhouse is not too dirty at the moment, not too sure about having the bike inside.

someone is trying to kill my flowers

A Lot Can Happen In A Week!

Between work, kids and living in a rental house up the road without Internet access, there hasn't been much time to post updates.  Finally today I've taken some snaps of the progress.  It's almost roof time but with 5 weeks till the kitchen goes in I think we are going to be gypsy-ing around for some time still until we can actually move back into our "home".
walk upstairs and voila, more space

builders finishing the rafters

the 8 meter beam is in

new kitchen window framed

out on the deck, rita asking if she can jump off onto the trampoline. um, no.

Sliding door framed.
