    hi all

    sorry ccbear ,this is the rest of my house

    start at begining ,this project [house] was started 4 years ago

    in that time we have completed 2 buildings

    1 garage [which we lived in for 2 years ]

    2 bedrooms 2/3 [which we moved into in march this year ]

    in the last 2 years john has had both his knees done and then gone back this year to have both knee caps done that was in june this year

    since then he has started doing our living pavillon and bedroom which is the last 2 building to be done and with a little help from the united nations [rtb and our wwoofers] it is starting to take shape

    more piccs later

    cheers cheryl

    Proof that many hands make light work:)…………………….and can still have fun doing it;)………….with a lot of dogged determination, tenacity, splinters , sore bodies topped up with good food and drink, throw in a sense of humour and the Mt Gardener project is well under way:metal:

    I takes my hat of to yous:clap:
