The gound floor has been framed and sheeted.
This is where our cellar and safety spot will go. The walls will be block.
While the door isn't there yet‚ this is where it will go.
From this angle you can see some of the internal wall framing‚ including for the stairs. The hole for the stairs hasn't been cut so as to avoid someone (i.e. Allan) falling down.
A view of the logs near the shed as the snow collected on them.
As the apples were only recently planted‚ they haven't budded yet so won't be worried by the snow.
Without the roof‚ there is snow in the house.
Not very often will you see snow gathering on the fence posts.
The pipes for the heating are 'plastic' in rubber lagging. All European design for maximum heat output.
The daffodil bulbs we planted in May are now beginning to bloom around the block - it must soon be spring!
The first days of spring bring cold weather‚ rain and even a little snow. Photo is taken through the bedroom door.
The blocks downstair have been laid. Beautifully finished. These will be rendered later. All of the doors and windows are double glazed.
This is where the kitchen will go in the open plan living space. Note that the pink bats were installed properly and not government subsidised.
All of the doors and windows have been installed to keep out the cold wind. They even make a difference at this stage although there are plenty of spaces.
The first shoots on the cherry trees have appeared this week.
The Huon Crabbapple was one of the first apples to shoot. Now all of them seem to be making the effort.
The quince is well underwaym but still in a pot until we can find the right place next winter. The pear is in the pot behind and has its first shoot coming through.
