What has a guest house and DIY projects got to do with each other?

Well, a guesthouse needs furniture, doesn't it? Lots of furniture as a matter of fact. And I have discovered that dumpster diving is a wonderful source of amazing furniture.
So far this week I got
1. A pine bedsite cabinet, louvre door, all painted black.
2. An old workbench, too big to get in any available vehicle so we dismantled it and discovered that the wood is GORGEOUS.
3. Old toolboxes x 3. I am so chuffed about these.
4. A wooden door, with glass missing. I am going to clean this up and it will become my menu board in the guesthouse.

We went up to Hluhluwe to fill in a wad of forms to get planning permission for the guesthouse. We also spent the rest of the day measuring up the place for the Hubcap to draw the plans. So things are moving along.

And to answer the question, why the tiny little dusty village of Hluhluwe?
It is the closest we could get to Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park. The Hubcap and I go up there as much as we can, so why NOT there?

Maybe a bit premature\, but I have started packing.
