Little House still needs plenty of work. Only half the interior wall cladding has been replaced (you can see the retro wood grain, which is still in place down the living room end), the roof needs to be done and there are some BIG gaps between the floorboards that have been worrying me a little.
I mean, I'm sure if a snake really wanted to get into this place, it could (they did in the other house after all, and that's about 2 metres off the ground). But I don't really like making it so easy for them. We've got a bit of a solution, which I'll come back to soon.
Meanwhile, the afternoon light on the back verandah at Little House is quite spectacular.
Sheepy has been taking full advantage of the fact we're no longer up the stairs and behind a baby gate and keeps trying to get into the house.
And Lu is also enjoying the easier access to the outdoors, even taking off without her boots on to explore, a cardinal sin in my books.
And the best part of all? We can see through the rest of Winter with a nice, new bathtub and gas hot water.
Once you've lived in a building site a while, the littlest things seems like the greatest amount of luxury.
