Building 'The Lodge' - Our Journey

We never thought this day would come but finally our land is 'scraped and pegged' and the house-build is officially commencing on Tuesday 7th October 2008. We hope you will join us throughout our first house-build project... exciting times ahead!

The beginnings of a roof before the Christmas break!

On our last trip to the house-build we took Rob & Heather with us in the hope that we'd be able to show them some more progress and boy we were not disappointed - not only is most of the brickwork completed but now the roof trusses etc are up too!

We were v naughty and 'broke in' to the site and even climbed up to the first floor and checked out how things are coming along up there too. It was so weird to walk around what will be our bedroom and ensuite and it becomes more and more real with each visit.

Unfortunately the builders have a 5-week break over Christmas and are not due to start work again til 20th Jan but we're hoping that they might get bored on their hols and decide to pick up their tools a little sooner.

Lots of pics for you this time - hope you enjoy the slideshow. I'll post again towards the end of Jan unless they take us by surprise!
