The beginning of May meant the beginning of our contract with our new job at Thembalitsha Foundation. We are still in the Western Cape but doing our training out of town in Grabouw and Somerset West which means that our work on the house is now limited to weekends and time is ticking on as we try our best to get the house rentable by the end of May. Of course getting the house rentable to other people is a lot more work than just getting it liveable for ourselves.
So, we aren’t sure how far along we will be, but we would like to invite you to our house warming/container house open day on Saturday the 23rd of May. Feel free to pop in and say hi and look around anytime between 11:00 & 16:00. As you can see we have a lovely deck so bring some drinks and a snack and we’d love to see you! If you are feeling crafty, let me know because there will be some odd jobs that we would love help with like pimping our fridge!
This invitation is open to anyone, from old friends to secret blog followers we have never met. However, please do let me know below if you are planning on coming along and leave your email address so I can send you more details.
Below are a few photos from the work that Cam and his dad did this weekend while I worked with his mom on the blinds and the cushions, but that’s a surprise for the next update, hopefully it will be a beautiful decor focused blog post.
I like to end off my posts with a little inspiration for those interested in building with shipping containers. This article has some amazing houses that I haven’t seen before and some great advice: What These 10 Shipping Container Home Owners Wish They’d Known Before Building Their Home.
Have a fantastic week everyone!
