Though I never updated this blog, Emma and I sold lovely Empress back in March last year (to a wonderful couple who love her as much as we did – you can read a lovely post on Jane’s blog here!)
We moved up to the Isle of Skye. At first, we were volunteering, with accommodation in exchange. After that, not yet ready to leave the misty isle, we lived with friends. We’re still here, in rented accommodation.
Meanwhile, we’ve been quite busy.
May I present…our tiny house!
Building work began last summer, and has been fitted in between Emma’s various building jobs, moving house and all kinds of other stuff. Like most big DIY projects, it’s been a bit stop-and-start, but it’s been incredibly exciting too. It’s not finished yet, but we’re making progress :)
We’re calling her Calgary, because that’s the name of the beautiful place in south Skye where we’re building her. It’s right on the shore, with views across the Sound of Sleat, to Knoydart and the mountains of the Scottish Highlands. (Though to be honest most of the time I refer to her as ‘the boat’ because it feels just like another boat project…in a good way!)
The journey continues… !
