Getting started

We spent a long time exploring the land, sketching different possible layouts for the guesthouse, and generally thinking about what to do next. Eventually we came up with a plan we were hapy with, and were able to start on some work. The place had been abandonned for some time, so we began by clearing the area around the house, and burning old offcuts and the like.

Then we were able to start on some building work - it was wonderful to finally be making some progress! We started by building one of the walls that would help to divide up the space. This one is a partition between the dining room and the guest kitchen. We discovered almost immediately that finishing and converting a half built house was going to be much harder than building a house from scratch as we had in Sarteneja.
