February 2016

We have been rather busy since my last update.

We put up the paintings, made a temporary roof cover for the shed,

and made more cabinets. We received our open veranda (called a Pergola),

and stored it temporaily in the garage, until we get better weather to install it.

Ahem, by the time we discovered that the constructor had forgotten

to hook up our sewer, we were literally in deep sh...

But as a compensation, while digging up the dirt,

he managed to rip our water line...

Remarkable: in between we were visited by a very close-knitted family

of some 50 caterpillars, linked in a chain. Never seen this before!

Oh well, back to the galleys...

We decorated the rooms, installed a "Trompe-l'oeil" picture in the

night hall, and added additional cupboards in the laundry/pantry.

And now we're waiting for better weather, so that we can tackle

our Pergola. Now combine a lot of rain with the ditch being obstructed

by our sewer-story, and this is what you get...

Fortunately, we built our house about 3 feet higher !
