It started at the outside-building the up and down decks
a side view
then the staircases-down and up
it waited like that for a couple of weeks
when the builders came back they went inside the house- that is the last we saw of the kitchen form that angle
and then they started knocking walls down- with some enthusiastic help from the monks.....
hey that is fun....
shall I continue?
no, I want to have some fun too........
and look at that!!!
Our guests work as well.....
Patrick as the head builder and Kym hard working....
Jason is helping too
we've had inside stairs to the upper floor
not any more- now we need to go up from the outside stairs
Kym and Jason having a break
Patrick is mixing some cement for the steel frames that will hold the upper floor
Kym is preparing the bases for the steel rods
tools on the floor
Dhamma for free- At Santi
The steel beams arrive
a closer look
Patrick is unloading them
so they can be mounted
work in progress
Kym is holding the fort......
put it in place
putting the floor down
only so we can put the walls on the floor......
so we can put the insulation in...
so how does that look?
upstairs in the narnia - putting in some shelves...
not neglecting the outside- the banisters are put in place
and don't forget the roof- opened and cleaned
re-inforced so we can take the ceiling off
and the view from the deck is breath taking
but the deck itself is a bit of a mess
it is shaping up though.....
the walles are put in place
and things look prety good and close to finish.....hopefuly to be continued......
Last touches- painting the walls......
and the cupboards......
sanding the floor
And doesn't it look just beautifull!!!!! All that is missing now is the stove which will be installed into the blue alcove...
