Finally the preparations are being made for the foundations – exactly 3 years and 10 months since the earthquake made this house uninhabitable …………… and completion date is expected to be in June – another 11 months!!  That’s a lot of rent to be paid, and a lot of stress for our very stoic elderly neighbour.  But the good news is her new home is finally  underway, and she should be living here before the worst of winter next year 🙂
