Start of a great week.¬†We had a great week digging out the compost then the ground soil from the Little Happy House new guest room. I started on my own and then decided I wanted to have more fun and get some help.So I asked ‘super man’ Walter, our next door neighbour if he wanted some work. He was keen so he helped me. Then Dag came – a WWOOF work exchange guest so things really jumped ahead fast.

The first task was to dig out all the existing compost and move it to a big pile in the adjoining rice paddy field. The next step was to level the ground. It took four of us a day. We were blessed to be able to use the soil to level the ground near the outside washing area – we lifted the level by a metre!

‘Super man’s papa’ joined on day 2 because we needed an extra set of hands to move soil. By day 3 all was finished and the ground level. Next step digging the wall footings and the corner post footings – next weeks work!
