Here are some ‘before’ and ‘after’ shots – so we can see how far we’ve come since 1st April 2014!
At the beginning – a burnt out shell of a building
A burnt out roofless structure
and suddenly ..
The tadpole building
Walls go up and extend the original rondavel
Looks better now
at sunset now
the original doorway
and now its an interior doorway!
And again from the inside – the original door and window to its left.
that original doorway from the inside
our masonry stove – faced in soap stone
Remember the saga of the stairs:
Mr Willard infront of the eventual stairs
Well we got there in the end!
stairs – unfinished
Looking down those stairs
And finally the school room up those stairs
Our Montessori school room upstairs in Tadpole
The Scottish play in our school library
