Lots of exciting things going on here. After finishing the outside-part of the ‘workmans-hut‘ Michael and Leif has started working on the circus caravan. It has been rebuild a lot of times before as you can probably see… and even though most of the shed is practically like crumble in our hands. the basic foundation is okay. WE WILL RESCUE THE CIRCUS :) and it will be great.
Vilja, Kornelius, randma Jonna and I are painting new wood in pretty blue shades… more pictures coming up later!
Vilja spends half the time with Anders and the other half with me. One week at a time. I usually pick her up when I’m in Copenhagen. But this time Anders brought Vilja to the beach house and paid us a visit.
Michaels mom ‘Grandma Jonna’ and Leif (Jonnas husband) lives in a big house far away from traffic noise and city lights. They have a little lake it their garden and pretty birds all around -they even have deers walking around in the garden… very Walt-Disney-like really! Sometimes when we eat dinner there ‘Bambi’ passes right past the windows.
Their house is close to the beach house and sometimes Grandma Jonna helps out with the kids. Then I can join the building project in the garden. She even brings us homemade baking goods once in a while. Lucky lucky lucky us!
We had tractor-help today. To even out the ground here and there and tear up a bunch of big roots. The wood has been painted it’s ready to go on the new hut.
Solid food for hard workers…
I think I skipped the part where I told you we’ve bought another old ‘house on wheels’. This is/was an old workmen’s hut. We tore out the inside yesterday and cutouts were made for windows and doors. Today it got new isolation and walls.
The wood you can see in my previous post is called ‘blokhusbrædder’ in Danish. It’s going on the outside walls.
I will tell you more about our business plans soon. I promise.
Kornelius keeps me up all night at the moment. I neeeeed some sleep. Zzzzzz….
It would probably be much easier (and cheaper) to buy something new than it is to restore this old circus-caravan. -But with guarantee not as fun. Preparations for Spring is full on!
Michael and I are spending all our time outside. Wood for the circus-project has been oiled and is ready for paint. The trees and bushes surrounding the entire garden has been cut of and the tiles on the ground in front of the house has been removed.
My miniature-addiction has gone out of control. I need to stop visiting fleamarkets all the time. It’s a really good thing I have a daughter to take the edge of the craziness…
Ps: If you wonder about the look of the surroundings Michael is about to put tiles on the wall and table in my workplace.
Like so many times before: cinnamon cakes. Michaels mom (Grandma Jonna) on pic. 3. And some circus-business preparations. Happy Sunday out there.
The garden of the beach house now contains: a pear tree, a walnut tree, a cherry tree, two apple trees, a magnolia tree and two types of grape.
Doesn’t look like much yet. But I can’t think of anything more satisfying than looking at trees grow while waiting for homegrown fruit… Some day.
