One of the rare moments of blue sky we had in the past weeks
Digging work started this week
We have received new gas and water pipes, and a new main power line . . .
. . . 160 meters of ditch as the Red House is being connected, too!
Inside the building … disco? Formula1? …. no, power steaming!
We hope to accomplish paint removal by the end of March
In the meantime, some walls have been knocked down for new doors
Whereas others have been rebuilt like this one for our kitchen . . .
. . . which our builders and working visitors use already
Furniture for our first 20 residential rooms arrived and just needs assembling ;-)
700 poots of paint are being used . . .
. . . mainly for painting the residents’ rooms
Meanwhile the new ceiling in the lobby has been completed
As has the fire alarm system
Our ‘Window Doctor’ and his nurse tirelessly continue to fix windows
The first floor panels have now been stripped and sanded
As have most of the old wooden doors – which have now been made smoke-proof
The Berlin based Tharpa storage was removed
from its base at the Berlin Centre
Holy Dharma arrived safely at our new home . . .
. . . and has been stored into the rooms . . .
. . . of the new Tharpa storage at the castle
