Today I uprooted the tree at the end of the wall I built yesterday. I'll replace it with a fruit tree of some sort I think. Built the front wall that's next to the road up and put my postbox in the wall too. Still got the other half of it to do. Glad to be tidying the place up a little, it'll start to look a bit better from the outside

Continued building the garden wall the last few days, very nearly finished it. Integrated some steps into the wall while I was at it too.

Put the final window in the bathroom today, forgot to take a photo though. The truck's still at the garage so more stone work today, this time I'm rebuilding the garden wall that separates the higher and lower levels, it had partially collapsed. I had to dig all the stone out and then rebuild it. I'll have to build some steps up the side of the wall too. Filled in the drain trench too which runs parallel to the wall.

I'd started clearing out the old ruin, just trying to make it safe, but my truck is off the road again so can't take the rubbish to the tip and don't want to move it twice so I'll continue with that when the truck is back. I've been building up the corner wall of the kitchen next to the fig tree. But run out of sand now, again I need the truck.
So today I started clearing the fallen rocks from the back of the ruin, just moving a big pile of rocks from one place to another really but it means I can see what's underneath. It would need to be done sometime.
I made a small frame for the final window in the bathroom too, so will fit that tomorrow, then all the windows will have glass in them. It's only taken me a year!
