Last Brick in the Last Wall

As we built the last wall of the house I rather regretted we couldn't have a window here
as the eucalypt is such a lovely sight. But I guess we have to put the stove somewhere!

Just one more row of bricks to squeeze in

I don't think Jonni will be sorry not to have to heave bricks around any more

putting in last brick
The last brick!!! When we began, I never thought we'd reach this stage and I used to
go around the house with a notepad to count how many bricks we'd laid.
Actually I was more concerned with how many still had to be done

all walls complete
and a few days later it's all dry and complete. The pale brick half way down
on this last wall is a little plaque I inscribed with a nail -

I hope I'm not being too optimistic calculating that the house will be completed
some time in 2005

next - And a Front Door Too
