We have completed a chapter in our lives and will start a new chapter in Kameel to complete our circle of life.
The area is filled with a rich history of days gone by. Kameel is crammed with remnants from the busy railway line that runs through it and was built in 1894 on a portion of our Great-Grandfather’s farm, Kameelbult.

Renovating De Oude Huize from 2000
The front door had six layers of paint that needs to be removed.
My husband, Hennie, used every known way to strip the paint.
Eventually it was heated with a blow torch and then scraped of.
This restoring process took months. Eventually all the doors, window frames and all wood was now exposed. Beautiful Oregon pine and Yellow wood now graces our house.
You can now follow the renovation process and the improvements that happened at De Oude Huize
