With lots of loading, hauling, and stacking by Jo (with help from her mum), as well as some cutting and splitting by Santi, the wood shed is well stocked for winter.
As the Orso clan will be spending time with us, we want plenty of wood for their stove, too, especially if its as cold winter as last year.

The Guest House fund raising appeal is receiving a good response. You can learn more about it and track progress here.
