Back to things of a more earthy nature! Our lovely WWOOFers had to leave because one of them had a job interview in Brussels and it is a long drive, but we hope they will be back at some point in the future! We managed to take off most of the panels on the back of the house and fix the doors on the second plastic tunnel as well as cook us a delicious cake (which I now have the recipe for!)
The builders are very nearly finished, just a half plank to go and we will have a floor! It is pretty warm in there already (not the same temperature as the outside!!!) and I can not wait to get the fires lit and start finishing off the walls!
Here they are making some plugs to fit in the holes they had to drill when lifting the house. The first one they are roughly shaping a piece of wood before it is hammered through the metal plate below.
Now they are finished!!! The last board went in, all the door frame bits were finished, all the tools cleared out and the last of the protective paper was laid down.....and then we lit the fires!!
Here are some before and afters...
And from the other way.....
And lighting the fires.....cosy!!
I was just looking at the weather site and they were saying that this time last year we were all having a heat wave!! It is very different this year, out my window is still pretty white and there is fresh white stuff falling from the sky and it is -8 .... Brrrr!! It was in the +20s last year! But at least the days are lighter!
