Tracy and Bertie heading into the house. We have adopted a "modified camping" lifestyle. We connected a temporary water line to a tap and the outside loo and relocated the laundry sink outside to give ourselves a source of water for drinking and washing up. We have to shower and wash our clothes elsewhere. We bought one of those humongous bbq's with a roasting hood which we use for cooking and we eat at the luxurious outside plastic dining table and chairs.
