Blueberries & Construction


I bought 5 almost full grown blueberry bushes a couple of months ago and planted them at the new house. They were all flowering when I got them and those flowers slowly turned into little berries, which have just ripened. So I had my first fruit harvest a couple of months before the house is even finished. I have to say that blueberry picking has to be one of the world's worst jobs...so time consuming. But I got about 2 kilos of berries from them and next year I'd expect to at least double that.

And the construction is moving along quickly as well. The rafters are almost in place (in the photos, they look a bit strange- they'll be extended out as an external corridor and the roof will look normal). The exterior is being cement plastered at the moment and the electrician is currently putting in all the tubing so we can plaster inside as well. And I'll have the drinking water connected in a week as well so we can then start with the plumbing work.

I have a bet with a friend that I'll be moved in by February 15th. It'll cost me a very expensive bottle of wine from Neyen (unless I can get a discount...I know the winery's CEO) if I lose...But I'm fairly confident.

  1. I'm pretty excited by how this construction will turn out. I have always dreamed of living in new homes by a vineyard or anywhere in a county. I love the metropolis, don't get me wrong, but the county reminds me of peace and relaxation.

  2. I hope your builders are skilled and taught by construction safety training agency. The surrounding looks a little challenging.

  3. The site of the construction is perfect. I like the idea of building a new home in that area. However, it would be a better idea to add a temporary fence for safety purposes. You can replace it with a permanent one as soon as it's finished. I look forward to seeing the outcome of the project.

  4. I agree. The site is perfect for this new establishment or residence. It is important for the workers to ensure a strong foundation for this building to prevent collapsing in case of twister and other disasters.

  5. That's wonderful. After the construction is done, you may also ask them to build you a little shed and start gardening there. You can grow more fruit-bearing trees there aside from blueberries. garage coatings

  6. I hope this construction is done now. I also hope that there are no legal issues that would block the use of this place such as non-fling of legal documents like form 2290 for construction vehicles and other things to be arranged.
