Progress report

Well the house has not really progressed above the foundations which did not surprise me. Ian was a little disappointed; especially when the builder said that he could not continue with the build until the 20th September but I guess these are the realities of building a house and at least we have something done. The promise is that walls, roof and windows will be done by the end of October but I will not be holding my breath (Ian is more optimistic!). We still got a lot done with regard to arranging the electricity, arranging someone to mark out the land, cutting and clearing the entrance and planting a few trees out the front. (See our line of carefully staked trees below)

After work we clambered on to the foundations and had lunch in the 'dining room' and an afternoon drink on the terrace!

Good to see you back and blogging...the dining room ( or is it the terrace?) is a vision of minimalism- did you get a designer in or was it your own concept? F&V x

A negotiation between us and the builder..designed to make the most of the external beauty by giving it an 'indoor/outdoor' sort of look!
