Sunday 6th

Here is where the house was up to on Sunday...
We transplanted this little tree from Victor's village home. It's obviously pretty happy because it flowered within days! As you can see, the windows are in. Below is looking out of the 2nd bedroom (through "the arched window"!) - this will be part of your view when you come to stay with us. The staircase is nearly finished. The 3 big corner posts (only one visible in this photo) were made by Chi from branches of our teak trees! The upstairs ceiling is going in today, so this will be the last view you get of our insulation. (I hope...)
The doors to our balcony. I am so happy with the balcony.
Things seem to be going slowly now. Everything has to wait for everything else. The ceiling people came and put in the structure for the ceiling - that metal grid you can see. Below you can see the electrician who came next to put in the wiring. Today the ceiling people are back to do the ceiling. Then the electricians will come again to put holes in the ceiling and put in lights, plugs, etc. We're getting there!

I can't believe you have posts made out of your very own teak.It's a very distinctive home, Rach, .I love the arches

The arched windows always make me think of Playschool. I LOVED it when they went through the arched window! Now I can go there every day!

The floor does look good. Teak too?? I'm so glad you've got insulation.

Hi Rachel,

Your new home looks great. The windows really do look like the windows in Playschool.
