While musicians are away….

Chris and Holly (and Graham the third member of The String Contingent) headed off into the wilds of Australia on the 4th August to play music, compose music and explore our great land.

While they were away we bagged mud brick walls which was a dirty, wet and cold job necessitating the use of Bill the Farmer’s cast off overalls!

We organised for ‘Pat the Amazing’ to return and make the driveway and finish the earthworks in preparation for gardening.

And installed our little kitchen! Peter built the kitchen in his workshop and transported it to the valley. We decided to use hardwood for all the cupboards and he chose a beautiful Queensland spotted gum for the bench tops. All the cupboards will be painted but the bench top and the island top will be oiled and waxed.

Appropriately the swallows took up residence on one of our posts. Mud brick builders recognise kindred spirits.
