The tree is in the ground in the back courtyard, but the rest is a mess. Inside, you can see the opening for the bi-fold doors at the end of the family room, through which the tree will be visible below. The frame for the fireplace is in line with the dining room opposite, and the front entry beyond.
I was sitting in the dream kitchen a few days back when a huge cement mixer appeared - I thought it was coming in for my toast. Well it was very exciting to see the cement going in for the first of the slabs underneath. As you can gather this is my first blogg (fellow bloggers - and I'm doing it in the dark!!!) Jim.

When will we ever get out of the ground? Mud appeared everywhere, the weather turned cold, and still they dug. One day no electricity, then the phone went, gas owas turned off and failed to reignite the hot water system for the weekend. Luckily the really cold weather came 2 weeks later. We went away many times for the weekend, and visited Mike for a shower or two and the odd meal. Lydia kept up the side.
