Catching Up

It’s been a while since I posted; got myself in a bit of a tizz trying to get as far on the build as possible before today’s party. So here are some pictures and notes on what has elapsed in the past few days.

Steven on the porch

We put the front of the porch together from the recycled ceiling beams from our other house and hoisted it (barn raising style) into place with some triangulating supports to keep it upright while we sorted out the rafters.

Inside the Marquee

I was looking back over the pictures I’d taken and realised there were almost none of the everyday stuff like living arrangements. So I took a picture of the marquee interior, where I spend most of my time.

Elmo with roof plywood

Elmo managed single-handedly to bring all the plywood for the roof down the hill.


I didn’t get round to hand-crafted individual invitation, but bought a pack of prefab ones from the post office, so I thought illustrating the envelopes was the least I could do.

tarp repairs

The tarp has been through enough wind storms to be needing repairs, so I’ve been making patches and sewing them on as needed.

plywood going on

Roofing progress!

candles and wine

My new (charity shop) candle holder and a glass of wine at the end of a hard day. I am going to take it a bit easier after this for a while.
