Growing local

Well Glen has begun his foray into permaculture his block is slashed, he has brought in a chap to create a dam, swales will be created, fruit trees and rain forest trees will be planted, vegetable beds will be planted as well. He has bought a tractor to help with the labour and will cut and mill his own timber, first job a shed and then a ford across the creek, he can't wait roll on March.

The hinges are original from the old shed doors, banged and straightened to fit.

Well Glen's services are always being requested on the block he is half through finishing off things. Bridges, cabin and  dam. But there is always something that needs his attention elsewhere. He is doing the shop frontage next to the one in the main street that he has done. This has a mining theme.This is  the frame for the doorway, it is made of recycled sign posts.And these are the doors made from recycled old shed doors. from the barn type building at the back of the shop.This is what the doors looked like before he worked on the timber, straitening it and making it to fit the frame.

Local councilor came past yesterday and said how good it would be if everyone would do this. She was very impressed.

The whole town will end up looking like it's made of log cabins.  Could be a great tourist attraction!

This will be the "front" garden It's on the street at the front of the block. Glen has scored it for the rain to catch in it. It is raining up there more often than here. I am collecting edible and medicinal plants and herbs for this area. about 350sq mtrs.

The axe handle hand rails are a bit of creative genius. And the new cladding (flitches) looks incredible, big improvement on the earlier look.
