When people ask what we are building next door we tell them it's something that will make our house disappear. They believe us to be joking for our house is a bit of a landmark, but the Hazelnut Inn will handily draw attention away from our home with it's much fancier architecture. Today, the carpenters began tipping up the forming for the giant firewall which will run along our shared property line. Our house instantly disappeared (from certain angles). This is only the first story of the wall which will go up two and a half times this distance in places. Once the concrete is poured the real interesting work will begin and happen quickly. This is going to be a whole lot of fun!
