Holy huge thanks to (in no particular order): Nathalie and Tim, who win the award for coming the farthest distance to help: England no less; to Jim, Roy (for all the days), Toby, Daniel and Wren, M & P, Tony, Laurie, Robin and Camilche, Thekla, Seamus and Elimar, Roger and Sarah, John, Eleanor, Van, Llew, Joshua, Jude, Odin, Simon, Oliver, Jenine, Stepha and Travis, and i am sure i am missing one or 2 others - you know who you are, and of course to all the others who got us this far (James). Putting up the straw bales was easier than we thought, thanks to the huge turnout for the workbee(s). Though, there were glitches, of course. Ah, details details, for which, if you are interested,
you will need to come talk to us in person and ask us
what we would do differently, if we were to do it again (HA!).
Thanks to the 2010 WWOOFers who made it possible to have
delicious organic food growing
and happy animals cared for while the house grew, slowly but surely:
Phil, Lisbeth, Stephanie and Paula. It was a blast and a total pleasure to have you here!
Many thanks, merci beaucoup!
And endless thanks to our loyal worker Earen, who worked
incessantly all summer it seemed on that blasted roof, among other stages!
Thanks also to Robin for sitting in for Swamp for the meat bird slaughtering so he could focus on the house, some more. And for cooking us dinner on another occasion: WOW!
Last but not least, thanks to the hundreds of firefighters for saving our neck of the woods, yet again, and to the powers that be, for not evacuating us this time.
Also thanks to our very own finest fire protection workbees crews.
What a summer...
Going back in time, to recap the summer's work:
