Day 1

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).

Day 2

Bane and his Team are well organised, they do good work, they work hard and they are very clean๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ

Day 3

The Nelfam Projects Team were once again hard at work. Two new internal walls were erected.

Day 4

The toilet is undergoing changes (image below).

A hole was opened on the wall to fit the front door to the new flat.

Day 5

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)๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ. Peanut๐Ÿˆ inspects everything everywhere and Rex๐Ÿ•โ€๐Ÿฆบ likes the place.

Day 6

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.
