There's great excitement chez Whittaker at the moment, because the yurt is now finished, and is due to be delivered some time next week. We plan on spending next weekend putting it up, and the following weekend moving in. Once we're installed in the yurt we'll hand in our notice at the rental, and that will give us three weeks in which to complete the move. This will be useful because there will be all sorts of loose ends to tie up, such as finding somewhere to store all our furniture, building a temporary ablutions block, and organising an internet connection.
As we're going to be moving up onto the site so soon, and the next two weekends are spoken for, we decided we needed to put up the letter box today. Here are some photos.
We borrowed a post hole borer from our friends, Frank and Linda.
Once we'd removed the turf with a spade, the borer made easy work of digging the hole.
I'm very fond of our letterbox - it seems very exotic to someone who's used to letters coming through the front door!
