First I had to remove some trees that over hung the house.

Bit more digging. The old “Sun room” is going very soon.

Next week I’ll cut the footings in for the 500x500x1mtr sandstone blocks we will build the retaining wall out of.

Oh and I’ve also be chipping away at a cubby house for my young fella. Should be big enough so that as he gets older it keeps getting used. Not a bad place for a beer on a Sunday afternoon either. 

Here is the cubby in its flat pack state...

Myself and next-door neighbour putting the flat pack together.

Flat pack panels ready to go up into the paddock.

Oh yeah, we also built a bit of a deck for the cubby to go on. That took some time to do too.

An hour or two latter...

It was pretty quick to go up but I ran out of time to work on it for quite a while.

These two like to hang out in the top of that dead tree next to the deck.

These two rare Bogan mullet sheep also like to float around doing bogan stuff.

Sealed up for the time being.

Good enough for us to camp in overnight. Great dad and son time.

Fast forward a few months and I finally found the time to get the steel on.

The other two sides my wife is doing in cedar. $$$ but it looks great.

Bit of an update.
Footings in.

Working out the bend needed to get a car trailer around and up the back easy.

Some blocks down.

Young bloke is pretty happy about it.

Bend worked out.

Fill in along with power, data and water for the shed build once the bank account recovers. Even at mates rates and working on it myself it wasn’t a small job or cheap (~25k).

The “sun room” off the back of the house will go in the next few weeks.

You have been a busy boy @Uncle
 i didn't realize how big that block is.

Yeah its quite a bit bigger than it looks. IE The wall alone is 48mtrs long. From the front gate to my back fence is around 100mtrs and the block is a little over 8,000sq mtrs.
