The roof is on!

We have just returned from a great trip to see the build in action. The first photo shows the roof when we arrived and the second when we left. You can see from the photo that the roof is finished and looks fantastic. 

After a long delay (4 months) waiting for the wood for the roof to arrive, coupled with Lamin (the builder) being very unwell and Paul (the roofer) suffering with maleria, we are now back on track.  The new estimate is 3-4 months to completion and we can’t wait.

Sometimes when we are back in UK I wonder whether we are doing the right thing building a house in The Gambia but every time we visit I realise how much I love it there. More posts from The Gambia coming soon.
