The objective was and is to convert part of the ground floor of our house (which is seldom used) into a flat for rent.

Frans, the Gardener
Frans has been a great help to me during the moving of the home furnishings. Frans helps us with our garden once every 2 weeks. He is intelligent, exceedingly hard working and honest. I will post Frans’s contact details once the flat has been finalised.
Photos of the flat once completed will be posted here. In the meantime I will post photos of the work-in-progress.
The area is almost clear. Wow, there is a lot of work packing and storing home furnishings. Fortunately we were able to store most things in the garage.
This toilet is going to be slightly enlarged and transformed into a pretty, functional bathroom.
Years ago, the small palm tree was planted in rocky terrain. Everyone thought it would soon die. Look how it is today – growing steadily and pretty. I did a bit of tree felling this afternoon (the leaves were subsequently removed).
Bane and his Team are well organised, they do good work, they work hard and they are very clean👏👍👌
The Nelfam Projects Team were once again hard at work. Two new internal walls were erected.
The toilet is undergoing changes (image below).
A hole was opened on the wall to fit the front door to the new flat.
All the interior walls are now up. The bedroom is going to be a happy and healthy bedroom – north facing, it gets sunshine every single day, all year round including winter (not just the bedroom but the entire flat is north facing)🌞👍👌. Peanut🐈 inspects everything everywhere and Rex🐕🦺 likes the place.
A lot of work done by Bane’s Team and by Manny/ Antonio’s Team. Today it was tubing installation for the electrics as well as for water.
