About Me

We moved out to Portugal to live a frugal but better , simpler and peaceful life, our house is a very basic, semi ruin, up in the hills outside Figueiro Dos Vinhos, where we work our land, enjoy life with each other and our dogs, and hope to make the smallest carbon footprint we can,

Spare bedroom.

Rik has been very busy since Dad left a week ago, he's finally got the time to make a start on converting the old smoke room that ajoins the kitchen and make it into a spare bedroom, there's a lot to be done but he's been beavering away and has the beams in, to block and beam the floor, its a tough job on your own and he wont let me help, those concrete beams weigh a lot and he has to drag each one manually across the garden and lift them into position above his head..... it took a whole day but its done.
It will be a stunning room, with a lovely balcony overlooking the back garden and getting the early morning sun.
Progress report on this later....
