Photo update

I'm back in the office job after two weeks with a mile-high stack of urgent-must-be-done-yesterday stuff, so I'll just post photos of our crew at work with some of the progress. We've enjoyed a wonderful "vacation" with the Thunderbay Stonehouses helping us (working like dogs) with the house. The outside mud is done and the lime plaster is underway! The lime should be done early next week and then we can move indoors...More to come later!

Great stuff! Fancy talking about it, show photos, etc at The Green Festival over Labor Day weekend? We are looking to do one soon.

Hi Peter,

I won't be around Labour Day weekend, but would love to know more. Hadn't heard about The Green Festival yet. Couldn't pull up the website.
