Renovation is going on (2)

In April I wrote my first blog about the renovation, we are  going to have. We have not rested, we are in full swing preparing for the renovation!! We are preparing our Amun home, for all the children from Amecet, who will live in Amun, when the renovation is going on in Amecet.
 The wall around Amun is finished! It looks very smart and it is more safe then the wired fence we had, The good thing is that also the snakes will stay out!!!!!
 This when you come into the gate, towards the house.
This is the new home for our staff member Dominique and her daughter Ruth. They lived inside the big house, but we will use her appartment for the babies. For the people who have been here, this is the little guesthouse and we made the store into a bedroom and added at the back 1,5 mtr. It is a nice little home and Dominique and Ruth are happy with it.

Maybe some of you remember that we had a fire at Amun and the big open hut burned down. We always used the hut as a shelter and as a meeting place. When we are coming with all the children to live for 2 months in Amun, we really need that shelter again, we decided to restore the shelter!!! 

We found some men to build the wooden frame again. The metal poles and the cemented little walls were still there.  You can see the man tying the wood, ready for the grass, which will be tied on the wooden frame

Simon and Elias went to the village with two cars, to buy the grass.

Two ladies are doing that job, one is tying the grass in the right size bundle and the other one is at the top, tying the grass down on the wooden frame

It is almost finished!! There are also two men repairing the cement on the little walls. Because of the heat from the fire, there were cracks. The hut is finished in a couple of days.
Amun house doesn't have a big veranda, so we will sit with all the babies in the hut, during the day.
Inside Amun we need new doors and the toilet needed to be changed, from two small ones we made one big toilet. I think we are almost ready for the big move.......... We keep you informed!! For those who want to help with the renovation, we can still use finances towards this big operation. You can find the details of our bank on the Home page of this blog.
