“He must trust, and he must have faith. And so he builds, because what is building, and rebuilding and rebuilding again, but an act of faith?”
During October 2012, we spent a long weekend in Edinburgh, Scotland, helping our friends with their latest and time consuming project. Building the house you’ve drawn yourself and doing most of the work by yourself requires a lot of dedication, as well as helpful hands of friends and family. Photos feature our friends as well as Rune giving a helpful hand. I did not do much useful stuff (..useless..!), but set about documenting things here and there. Documenting things consisted out of watching people lug rocks, bricks and junk around, having a delicious lunch in a very colourful pub (can’t remember the name) and climbing up and down to and from the second floor. As exciting as building a house may be, being on a building site can get a bit dull at times. So after a while, I decided to take a walk and wandered off to Holyrood Park with the goal of going up to Arthur’s Seat. As I was getting closer, I saw a storm rolling in and turned around instead, making my way down the Salisbury Crags and meeting a flock of rather docile swans on my way back to the site. Hence the entirely off topic photos on the page. I imagine we will be traveling back, maybe some time this year (?), to see how much progress has been made and to lend a hand if needed.
