Now, another festivus is upon us and we're taking a few days off the tools so I'm sharing some looooong overdue words and pix. In a day or two, we'll be back at it. Our dear council have imposed an 'end-of-May' deadline to finish off the house. Funds, sanity and health prevailing, we will get close to Cert of Occupancy by then. Maybe I'll share some more updates some day before then...:)
