We are still working hard!

Update......    Well I had my partner and his dad here for 3 weeks and was all very busy doing insulating, plumbing and heating work on the house, it was none stop, no time to relax and enjoy this time here  for them, or for me and my partner to have  time together as we have not seen each other for 6 months! one day we hope to be able to take the time to enjoy all this hard work... when?? that is always the question....  

Things are moving in the right direction now though so hopefully we are talking months now and not years, till the old house is up to date and  and habitable,It has been a long hard 8 years for us both,  living apart and both in less than ideal living conditions! All this sacrifice for this old house,  I really hope it will be worth it in the end,  

 They have gone back to the UK now back to work, to earn the money needed to pay for the next phase of works, the interior.... this will make a huge difference to the house and life!! indoor bathroom,  what a treat!  the simple things in life.......   

I tried to add some Photos but too large...  and page would not let me download them! sorry,  

well I have some friends coming over in a while to help me with some self levelling that needs doing before we can get the walls rendered and plaster boarded the electric and telecoms have been done the septic tank all sealed  so all going on here at our Quinta, please share and keep looking at our SLOW but steady progress....
