I have more pics posted on Facebook and Instagram, or you can check them out on Money Saving Mom on Facebook as well :) While our guests were here, we also took them to see the progress on the house. The oldest child of Money Saving Mom had gone with us when they visited 3 years ago and was eager to see what changes had occurred since then.

Once the electrical is finished, the interior will be plastered. After that, we plan to tile the whole house. This will make it easier to keep things clean! Some of the plumbing will happen before the tile is laid and some after.
Darin has been keeping track of all incoming and outgoing transactions. We have received more than we originally thought, which is why we are able to tile the entire house. As someone who has lived in a house while it was being tiled, I am really happy that we can get this finished before the family moves in! We hope to have enough left to buy a stand for the water tank as it needs to be elevated to provide enough pressure for the sinks and bath.
We are not sure yet if there will be enough to paint the interior, but we are hoping so as it will make everything look more bright and finished. Getting the kitchen kitted out with cupboards and a stove will also have to wait, but this isn't the end of the world as they've been managing without cupboards and with only a two plate burner for years.
If you would still like to contribute, the donate button at the top of our blog is still working :) Just thought I'd put that out there...
We are getting back into the normal rhythms of life over here after the school holidays. Tyson started back to school on Tuesday, Jori heads back Monday. Amo is back with us after a few days away last week. We are having another cold snap here and staying warm is something we work hard to do all day. Lots of hot drinks, hot water bottles and multiple layers of clothes for the win!
