Renovation continues

We have now complete this project and we and our guests shouts Hooray  . . .  hooray.  
We have posted the previous post as well as the last impression.  

Our "Nest", at De Oude Huize Yard, really needs a new "stoep"
In South Africa a "stoep" is very important.  

  • It is from here where you can watch the garden grows
  • The birds feeding 
  • The sun rising over our mountain 
  • Drinking early morning coffee with rusks 
  • Love being alive

Sharing pictures with you 

This section shouts for improvement 

The original sandstone foundation was deteriorating very fast. 

The wall was buckled and busy falling over

Cracks everywhere

New foundations and sandstone wall

The new retaining wall completed

Time to remove the old wall and pillars

The original wall with a lot of history in it

Hennie is changing a lot of bits and pieces into a window 

The window is ready to be fitted

Window is fitted and the wall almost completed

The side where the cracks was visible

Cup of coffee as the sun sets?. 

What a surprise even some lead glass in the window!!!

The old red cement slab has been removed

The new "stoep" only needs some tiles to complete!
We can now enjoy the wonderful view of the garden and mountain 

Till next time
