    The stone work is starting to take shape. Do you see that big metal pole? It was put there many years ago to help support the electrical wires to the house. Trying to get this moved has turned out to be a pain in the butt.



    It looks like the front should tie in neatly.

    Our fake wood beams are now up. The guy that did the work showed up at 6 every evening and worked until 9. The noise in the evening drove me crazy.



    Looking at where the wall use to be. Notice the worker's birth mark on his right arm. Regardless, he did do a hell of a good job.

    One of the outside walkways. Of course it is not done yet. The tile worker has been gone the last two days. I don't know why.



    This walkway is where the washer and dryer will go.

    I should have shown this picture earlier. It shows what happens when the wife changes her mind halfway in the game plan. So now instead of having a sliding glass window, we now also have a door. In retrospect, not a bad idea.

    Remember, earlier in this construction confusion I mentioned that the tile guy had not shown up. Come to find out the main boss was not satisfied with some of his outdoor tile work, so he was let go.

    This shot shows him at work before his pink slip. His wife would mix the cement and sit.

    Look at this mess! This view is the attic area above our old living room and bedroom. Soon, this wire crap will be cleaned up and the sheetrock/gypsum board will be installed.



    You saw it here first. One of two things is going to happen at this site. Either a massive waterfall and semi-lake will be here in a jungle surrounding or hillbilly will have a massive heart attack.

    Budget for this phase is set at B150,000. Let's wait and see...

    Where do these people come from? I have no idea who that lady in the hammock is.



    This rather pathetic shot show the xmas lights. Or what should be the lights. Seems things are not kosher...

    I love Hillbillys building threads, his village house is still my favourite of all time. Your house looks great so far, I look forward to seeing what happens as the build continues.

    No posts by HB on this thread since 20/12/09. Is everything OK? Did the build get completed?
