Hahaha this is pretty funny I reckon - reduced version of the drone footage created by my friend Pete out at Currawinya. He forgot the Forever House name and called it Long Time House which is almost a better name... and his production makes me laugh each time I watch it - hope you enjoy. There's a lot of the roof and surrounds - I can't wait till he is good enough to fly his drone through the house! Thanks heaps Pete. x
|Mum opening the gate - dear love|
Today was earmarked to go back out to the Forever House and collect the camper trailer now that Ronnie has finished with it for the time being. He is actually taking the camper trailer.
Mum came with me for the drive, and we met Ronnie and mate out there. Ronnie had to collect all his left behind tools, scaffolding and planks and his trusty camp chair. I towed the trailer back to his place
|Metal finished apart from cnrs which will happen next time|
|Sliding doors at long last - so good|
|Front door has a lockable handle on it now. |
For completion it needs timber added to to the bottom
and stained glass panels installed
A number of things will wait for next time Ronnie is here - like the frame for the glass walls above the mud walls, and some of the doors and windows are fixed in place still to be hung and given handles. As I have said many times, I have so much to get on with, this is not an issue. I am very happy with the job Ronnie has done and where the house is up to.
|panes of glass and coats of paint still needed but largely done|
I will be getting on with stained glass while at home and cutting panels for the remaining glassless windows out at the farm. When we were there the other day it was apparent how confused the swallows have become with so many of their entry points closed off. I hope they work it out sooner than later because they will be damaging themselves on those large glass doors.

I also hope to complete the mosaic floor I started in the bathroom late last year but which has been on the back burner for a while.
