We are having our usual Christmas and New Year holiday break again this year but also taking time off for one of our work crew to recover from an minor health issue, a long-awaited hernia operation that was delayed because of the Covid saga. This means that much of January will be gone before we […]
The last two weeks have been a break away from our House Building project! We decided to have a complete change of scene while we wait for the glass window units to be manufactured and delivered (target date is the week beginning the 28th September). BUT .. It wasn’t a complete removal from the actual […]
Last Sunday (the 6th), supposed to be a day of rest, saw but we saw the worst day in our time here at Roselea with 8 hour period of rain, rain and more rain falling upon us, starting from about 8am and finishing about 4pm! 59.1mm Yes, that is the amount of water that indeed […]

Work on doing the rafters was postponed while Shaun recovers from his muscles injuries. The recovery is going well. With the weekend here now, he should see him have enough time to gain his physical health back again and start doing some light duty work on Monday.

This afternoon, having completed the production of the four rafters (for the “P” and “N” sections), we couldn’t go outside as it was snowinging quite hevily!! Tomorrow, we have our Oak Timber arriving, during the day sometime, and with the cold snap occurring this week all over the country, it is unlikely that we will […]
