No, not the halucinatory kind, but the dreamy kind. When we started renovating this property, I had a vision, or maybe I should call it a dream, or maybe a wish.... never mind, I just knew how I wanted the place to look.
In the beginning we spent so much time and money just fixing what was wrong that we sort of lost track of what we wanted. Now we have done most of the have to's and have started on the want to's.
The back courtyard was a desolate place. Four walls and a paved floor with a couple of pots with herbs.
The Hubcap is very handy though. In no time we had beams cut to size and ready to go up.
Already the space looks a lot more inviting, even if it is just the bare beams. We got them all measured and made sure they fitted. Then we took them down and painted them.

Getting closer and closer to my vision.
We made a trip to Kwambo Poles and bough a load of laths. What a job to get them painted! But so worth it. Thank goodness for electric screw drivers. If we had to do this by hand it would have taken forever. So we are 99% of the way there. Just a couple of things to go on the wall and Phase 1 would be complete.
