It's starting to look like a house. We have a roof and wall frames and windows and doors. The brick-layers will start in the next day or so and the plan is to have the house able to be locked up before the Christmas break. No work will happen then for a couple of weeks. So we probably won't go up again to check on progress until the end of January at least.
Ours is one of a dozen houses currently under construction in our little area. All the builders are trying to get as much done as possible before Christmas. There are tradesmen and trucks everywhere.
I love the view of the canal we will get from the kitchen window. We may lose the view when houses get built over the road, but until then......
This is what it looks like up closer (walking over to the canal). Some of the boats would cost more than our house.
The area I will have for garden looks SO tiny in comparison to Missy's garden but it will still be a challenge - starting from scratch again.
While we were there, we had to visit the beach of course - the ocean side this time. Because it's school holidays there were families enjoying the beach.
AND a bit of a bonus - on the way home we stopped at one of the fruit stalls and bought a box of various fruits for Christmas plus a box of mangoes. Yum!!!
Have a wonderful Christmas everyone
and see you all in 2015.
