Deliveries began this past week, boxes were disassembled, and the measuring, drilling, and installing began. Sounds pretty similar to what a renovation in the US would sound like, right? Well, if you take out the fact that three different trucks backed down a stone path a few hundred feet then you're right, it's just the same :)
One poor truck--the one that delivered the components for the kitchen--couldn't get past the corner of the castle wall (due to the truck's size and the narrowness of the path) and was forced to stop in the middle of the path, blocking anyone from passing. E. and I ducked under the truck's mud flaps to get past so we could take pictures and document this crazy situation! In this neck of the woods they do not hold school on Wednesdays so we were able to have a fun day together while Daddy worked on the cottage.
