This will be a new page to show you the progress with the building of our new house. We waited 5 years to see our dream come true. Monday the workers will start. Here a picture of the plot how it looks now.

On the back we have the light house of our village and in the front the Atlantic Ocean.
I hope that we will pass Christmas in the new house.
Will see... Soon I'll post more.
Hugs. Pink

And here we are! After a long break here you can see the new pictures we took today. A lot of work has been done! Next week they will close the roof.

This evening we made a little party to celebrate the finished roof. You can see the tree on the top (that's a Swiss tradition). I was a perfect evening, with mini pizzas, mini croissants and Prosecco.

Perfect sunset to end our party!!!
