So long – but now…

It’s been a while since you’ve had any pics, because things have been really slow around here. Blame the weather! Can’t remember how many times the slab pour for the lower garage under the one-day-to-be kitchen had to be postponed because of rain. BUT things are moving – slab is poured, as you’ll see below, Colin has a local carpenter helping put up the frame for the back extension, and although it’s still pretty chilly with the southerly – or today, westerly right of the snow – wind, spring has sprung and the house will grow along with the vegies, and the weeds.

The view from the kitchen today! Yah! Walls - of a sort.

And more frames.

And more frames. The loungeroom extension.

Beginning of the long journey to the slab!

And in the meantime these have grown - I have mounds of sweetpeas, and peas, because the packets said they didn't need staking. All lies, and next year they ALL get something to hang onto.

And in the meantime these have grown – I have mounds of sweetpeas, and peas, because the packets said they didn’t need staking. All lies, and next year they ALL get something to hang onto. Even living in a building site flowers are essential, even if that’s practically all there is n the room. The metal pole behind them is a prop holding up the roof..

A drafty bedroom. The sub=floor will help tie the new section to the old cottage, and keep it solid. In the meantime the cats think they have a new cat-door.

    Lovely update. Cats have such a choice. They must love playing on the site. Glad Spring is on the way for you, we have had a very warm Srptember here, which has made a nice end to the Summer. Hopefully you should have no more weather hold ups. Good luck, love the updates – Paul
