Using this short break after a tetanus shot to give you a drive by update, yo.
First, a shout out to Holy Cow milk from our local Careys Bay Jersey herd. We get it from the service station in actual bottles which are returnable. It is fucking delicious and I say that as a lactose intolerant person who should not be drinking this stuff ever.
Also: we are about to actually break ground on the long-delayed Idlehouse, our accommodation studio-to-be in ye olde Port Chalmers. Much excite. Commencement was even favoured by a full moon, which is hugely auspicious.
So I took these pics to memorialise the formally shitty end of the garden which is now graced by our new (proudly home made) fence before it is covered in SIPs build hurrah!
Here's some able units from DS Building, a local outfit, stringing up the foundations. I chose them because they had worked with SIP panels before: believe it or not, this methodology is still somewhat novel here in New Zealand. It's fast, pre-cut, structurally efficient, super-insulated and relatively eco-friendly, on balance. I don't know about you, but I am massively over crappy traditional stick construction. The glazing will be low-E double. No, I am not getting any kickbacks for saying any of this stuff. Sigh.
Now we have to go and dig some big fucking holes which I am not looking forward to. Talk to you soon.
