Remember that container? Turns out it's like this:
1. we were planning to have a sleeping loft or second floor anyway,
2. we need a shed,
3. ttBOY wants a climbing (bouldering) wall/room,
4. it is much easier to have the shower in a building rather than on the bus because tBOY is too tall for a bus shower. So we would have had to cut a hole in the floor (hence structure) of the bus - which may not be such a good idea.
So considering the cost to build all these things separately, it makes $ sense to build one bigger (30'x10') structure to house it all.
What we did find out in choosing to use the container is that the plumbing/septic is already set up in its existing location. It makes sense to build the new structure in the same location. Which means we need to dismantle the container before we can start building. Sigh! tBOY, tBrother and tFriends will get on that this weekend.
On a more productive note, some things started to happen yesterday!
The landlord began taking apart the brick structure (where we were initially going to build a concrete pad for the bus). It'll be great when all this is gone and it is only greenery! He got help from 2 young travellers who are working for him for room + board. He also started to cut down some tree branches to make a passage for the electrical lines that will be installed (soon?!)
Phew. Another obstacle overcome.
