Getting a bit cooler now so we are having fires every night and have zipped up the tent windows, yep serious stuff winter in the tropics.
Got my 20,000 litre water tank plumbed up finally, hooray – I now have guttering along the back of my roof collecting rain water, divine !!
Thanks to some unexpected help from very good friends this month I got additional side projects completed :
Don, Elanor & Ned set me up with extra solar, connected to two deep cycle batteries, I’m learning a lot more about 12volt wiring which is a necessity here offgrid !! I also had another friend Nick come and stay, he worked hard to help me finish the rock walls, make a wicked swinging bed and make a sink out of an old plastic table and sink we picked up free from the roadside. I now have a SINK, wow, which I’ve plumbed out into a banana and taro planter box, collecting the sink greywater. I was also given some casement windows and roofing iron from a girlfriend cleaning out her yard. So used the iron to make temporary walls three sides of the outdoor shower to provide some privacy, thankyou to Nat !! I also had random, “I’m just going to drop in and help today” friends, thankyou Priscilla & Marty for helping with rock walls and taking me to lunch !!
