The first of November 2012 signed the papers that made us the owner of a summer house. The first time we saw it we fell in love with the view and the surrounding country side. The house itself is in big need of renovation and we started working almost immediately after we bought it. I will add pictures her as the work proceed.

The outdoor kitchen now stands firmly on stone paving. There wasnt enough sand so the last adjustments and sand between the stone slabs will have to wait until the next visit.

Currently this is where we wash our hands. Ten liters of water last surprisingly long when its freezing cold.

The toilet now has a sink (but no water yet) and a mirror.

The old rotten roof on our outhouse is now removed and replaced by fresh fragrant planks and roofing felt. A small annoying bubble in the middle of the roof (second image), due to uneven planks, has to be fixed. Next spring we will put some paint on the wall and it will look like new again.

This is what roof looked like before. No a pretty site.

Added a skirt around the bottom of  the  house. Looks really nice I think.

A lot has happened since beginning of June. We still have a lot to do but it moves forward. We got some cheap furniture for both indoor and outdoor. We worked hard with the windows, scraping and painting. We finally got hold on an electrician and we now have electricity in all rooms. Next big job is the toilet house. The roof and floor carpet will be replaced and some paint will be put on the outside and inside wall. Many pictures this time so I let them speak for themselves.

Its been a weekend of hard work. Focus has now moved outdoor because the facade is in high need of maintenance. Mostly painting but some boards needs to replaced with new ones. My father in law helps out a lot in this area – Thanks!
