There are some jobs that we need to do before we can engage a contractor for the major renovation work on the fienile.
The most pressing jobs are associated with moving things. Our main stack of firewood is on one outside wall of the fienile, our overflow stack of firewood and heating pellets are inside the fienile and several piles of cleared vegetation, rubbish, bricks and stones are behind the fienile.
So Stu has been spending his days moving things. It's heavy and boring work. It's also deeply frustrating because we have created these piles in the last 5 years so moving them is double-handling. Now is not the time to talk about the triple-handling which will need to occur once the renovation is finished!
