Exciting times – we get our carpet tomorrow! We have been flat out trying to get half of the rooms emptied so they can do half the house tomorrow, then tomorrow night we have to move all of that back and empty the other half of the house for the carpet the next day!
This week on the farm we have built half of our wood shed, as we are staring down the barrel of winter. Last year we got through on damp wood, and while it was better than nothin’ it certainly wasn’t great.
Well it is homestead hop time again!
On the homestead this week it is all go trying to get this house finished before the vinyl flooring goes in next week. We have been madly painting architraves and door frames.
It is school holidays here this week, which despite being homeschoolers, makes for a very busy week!
I managed to get a chance to look over the tree grafts that I did last spring to see what worked, and I am happy to report over half of the apple trees took!
It is that time of the week again! This week on the Piwakawaka Valley Homestead the little Piwakawaka (fantail birds) are everywhere! This is the time of the year that we bought our section 2 years ago – That time has gone SO fast.
This week on the Piwakawaka Valley homestead we are still working towards getting the house finished. Why do we leave all the hard fiddly bits to the end? To be honest, I have lost all motivation to get it done, it is merely the threat of the bank that is making me get on and get it done. I will post some pictures once the flooring is in next month. Then it will feel like a real house!
This weekend just gone we hit an exciting milestone – we have finished our ceilings! Our house is so very nearly finished. That home stretch is long and hard.
This week we are still working frantically to get our house finished before our winter. Today was spent picking carpet and vinyl – why are there so many to choose from????
Exciting times at Piwakawaka Valley – we have joined The Homestead Hop. Each week we will showcase a selection of posts from other blogs and they are all homestead related!
