we have walls

Busy times at the hut build site:
  • concrete floors polished = tick
  • all the walls are now up and bolted down = tick
  • Rob has been digging away shifting fill from the house site into our terraced gardens
  • we now (as of last night) have roof trusses on half of the hut.

Sadly the pics from last night are still on Rob's camera, so you'll have to be patient.

But the addition of the roof frame is pretty exciting. The hut looks so tall! The steep pitch of the roof is one of the design features we particuarly wanted and it looks impressive.

Apart from the hut, Claudia has been keeping us all amused (and busy trying to make sure she doesn't destroy everything), I've been to Melbourne for work, I've managed to come down with a head cold so spent the last couple of days lying on the couch, and my sister turned up from London to stay with my parents for a month.

Apart from all that we've been decorating the house, writing Christmas cards, wrapping presents and buying dried fruit in outrageous quantities. This year we're only making 2 large puddings and 4 cakes, but the ingredient list was still impressive!

Can't wait to show you the pics of the roof.
