With the deadline of Western Power arriving to lay the electricity cable to the shower block we had a mad week last week digging in the rain to make a trench for the cable and the water pipe. Digger sunk twice and the field now looks like we had a festival but it’s in! We had some brilliant help from my sister Jane, her partner Dave and my lovely niece Rachel who came for a relaxing week to visit her auntie and found herself up to her chin in mud. Matt was amazing on the digger and is now looking forward to laying the road…. (not exactly his words). Thanks also to Leslie and Jack for their help laying the trench sand. Meter people arrive this week and we will soon have power which will make building much easier. The sun is shining now and the field is drying out nicely.

Thanks to the brilliant Andy Camis we now have a skeleton of a shower block building. We are now a bit stuck with the roof structure and it seems carpenters are in very short supply up here! Groundworks and plumbing weren’t quite what Andy signed up for (traditionally a Carpenter) but there wasn’t a day when he was bad tempered, despite a few terrible jokes. I am now a better digger driver and cement mixer than I was, although that wasn’t the first thing that came to mind when thinking about starting a Glamping business.

We have finally brought our 4 beautiful yurts home from storage. A huge thank you to Sacha from Yurts for Life for all her advice and support on how to store them. They are hand built in Totnes by Sacha and her team. We had fun and games learning how to put them up! They are traditional Kyrgyz yurts made from steam bent Ash sourced locally in Totnes from sustainable woodland. We went to visit the workshop to have flues put in for the woodburners and had a tour of the incredible workshops. The yurts now have a specially designed room of their own at home with us till we open next season. But will we remember how to put them up next year?
