The top of the Story Hill, thats the kitchen/dinning room. Took the snap yesterday, it was cool and sunny. I had the fire going in the lounge. I sat in the Sun and the stories came to me…
I built all the furniture; Queensland red Cedar table and the shelf with the cut-outs in the window. I Grew the tree then cut it down, milled the timber and built things with it. Only down side is, I’m getting allergic to the sawdust, same with a lot of dusts.
Not only did I build the furniture, I designed and built the house… I dug the footings by hand; pickaxe, crowbar and shovel… and then filled the trenches with steel and concert. Then the mega-bricks, one at a time. Do you know what was the hardest brick to lay? Think about it… it was the first one, the first brick is the hardest to lay when your building a brick house.
The kitchen with the walk in pantry at the top-right… its a room 15’X6′ full of shelves and stuff.
Digger dog about to go into the pantry.
Digger dog in the pantry.
The lounge room, I built all the furniture, except the sofa and seats.
12v lighting in the bookcase, solar panel charging a small 12v battery… the start of us going off grid. Built the window frames and French-doors
The fire is going… Winter down under. Most of the paintings are mine, I can’t afford to buy art. The gate is to keep Digger dog out.
The walls are just over a foot thick. The bookcase is slotted steel with wood clued on and chipboard shelving…cheep,cheep but strong with no sags.
