ongoing works….

…so the kitchen is slowly taking shape thanks to the amazing and generous work of Edek and Simon who are there most days engaged in this art form that is Plumbing; i’m mesmerised at their skill and so grateful for their good disposition and spirits.

…and the outdoors cob oven has received it’s final smooth coat as well! made of clay, sand and wheat “glue” (cooked flour and water). We did it last saturday on another session of collective fun; Raju, Renee, Toby, Ken, Tony, David, Pilar and Renee’s children were there with hot cups of tea, cold toes and good laughs
