    The driveway to the house, is completed we planted trees some years ago with euca so the shade of the trees and the breeze, makes living here less oppressive.

    The road to the manor is approx 1/2 mile long, we have armed guards protecting the estate at night as there are some unsavoury characters around the area who seem to like to help themselves to fruits fish etc.

    Piwanoi yes its a pretty road if not a little rustic, the road in the rainy season is the same in the dry season but with water on it.

    I would like to thank the members who sent messages of support, and wishing to contribute to the project, after consulting the wife we thought $1000 for each contributor would be a kind gesture, the money can be sent by western union or moneygram.

    The donors could be part of a time share scheme, and would be able to share are new found comforts, each donor would have 14 days accommadation depending on availabilty.

    There's good money to be had hereabouts from Euca all the Country lanes are planted with em ,theres a massive Euca station not far from me and as fast as the locals are taking them in big low loaders are taking them out to the pulp mills to be turned into paper ,one thing about Euca its indestructible cos as soon as its chopped down the stump starts growing again ,and in the wet season at a rapid rate too ,in fact I think a certain kind of Euca is the fastest growing tree in the world .

    Get some house pics up Jack. I've built a couple for myself and involved in building half dozen others in our neck of the woods. Can give you some accurate budgets and some ideas on renovation. Not far from me so could pop down on motorsi and take a look.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    i think we will have to disagree, i have farmed euca for some years now and looked at paulownia because of there growth, approx 15 ft a year, though the north east has not got the soil required really.

    Hardly a disagreement Jack cos personally I ain't a clue ,I just remember reading it somewhere years ago when I first came here and wondered what the tree's were, having never seen them before
