The Frugaldom Microholding is Coming to Life!
Summer Sun in Springtime
We're labouring flat out to get as much of the garden converted into a working microholding as possible, before we actually move into the house. As long as the sun shines and the rain stays away, we concentrate most of our energies outdoors.
Yesterday, 29th April, was day 15 of our '50 Day Challenge'. That's how much time we have to pull the project together and make the house habitable. That means it's only 5 weeks until we start moving into the cottage!
It's one of our current next door neighbours who will be renting this house after we leave (start of June), so they asked if they could purchase the multifuel stove we had installed, along with the greenhouse and garden shed. After much to-ing and fro-ing, this was finally agreed, just in the nick of time, I might add, as H had already started dismantling around the greenhouse. This, however, has meant that we are left with the problem of no garden storage at the new place, so hard cash has had to be spent!
