Work on the Old Winery began in earnest Last week when we were joined by Hannah & Lucas from Colorado and Wendy’s son Tom. We found Hannah & Lucas through www.workaway.info a great website for people who want to travel and are happy to work in return for board and lodgings. They are with us for just over 2 weeks and they are fabulous people in their twenties and with loads of energy, enthusiasm and commitment.
Wendy’s son Tom has come to stay for 6 months to help us with the project and he is getting stuck in too plus John Reaney our top builder began work on the stable, it will become our garage and Fisher’s workshop.
Progress this week included:
Footings for the wall that divides the house from the garage and the beginnings of the re-enforced wall which will hold the floating stair case. Bricking up the garage window and levelling the floor in the garage.
Felling the huge fig tree where the riverside terrace will be and knocking down the archway wall to make room for the riverside terrace
