Today and lately on our land

So lately…

September that is..a month ago we dug.

Well we decided what to do finally with the left side (when you enter) of our land. This is the part where cows are. The land has a tilt downwards to the left side. So we need to fill this up so it’s level with the terrace. We decided to build up a small wall. So I started digging for the foundation for the wall.

When G had put the wall up we started to fill up a little to hide the wall.


A little work here and there and we are slowly progressing with the outside. Which is a big relief thinking about it. Because when we will move in, the greater part of our land will be finished.

Yesterday babe decided to start cleaning up a little bit outside so he burned up all the pieces we didn’t have any use for. This is in front of the house.


The extra garage is very close to be finished. The ceiling was done last week, just before the party.

Electricity was finished yesterday. And so today we put one layer of paint on the walls and next week final layer.

Have a nice Sunday all!


Latest house update

The front wall is rising 🙂
It’s not finished yet but it already looks more like a house/home than a construction site 🙂

Up up and away!

And so the construction started. The ground was dug and we start to realize what was happening. Size wise though it is really confusing. When you have no walls the dimensions are messed up. You can’t really see it. So we were freaking out that we made it too small. For days and days. And yes we passed 2 times per day sometimes because the action has started and today we do have a house!

All this below happened in a day! It was madness. By lunch they had put two rows of bricks and when I visited in the evening there were walls higher than me! That’s the moment I really realized what was going on. It is a house and it might not be too small after all…

So I’ve never built anything, though I know it takes time. Then of course it depends who’s doing what and if it is a professional or not. And also in which country! I need to say, without knowing a whole lot of how to construct anything (well before this house I had not many clues) I must say the that our house is built fast, profesisonal and neat. Yes neat. Every time someone is done with their job they clean up around themselves.

My parents came to visit and they got to see the above, the following day we closed the house. Doors and windows are set.

Two first photos are from the front.

Below it is the living room and the bathroom window from the terass and the next picture is the garage from the side.

So now it is holidays and no more work. Also we had a small (actually big) problem with the window frames and so they will all be changed (no extra payment from our side of course).

The extra garage/ atelier 

Meanwhile we have been building our extra garage. G and his dad have been, not we as in me 🙂 I did some digging though 😉

Sooner than you think you can come and occupy one of our bedrooms!! 😀

We bought a land!

In Ciry le Noble!


This is how it looked like in January when we bought it. There was a small sheepfold which we made disappear so we can start building our future home! ❤
