Garden and Infrastructure

It was a busy weekend, and there is some chaos happening at the house… Most of it isn’t caused by us. Somehow we managed to decide to build a house at the same time and in the same neighborhood as most of the city’s big infrastructure projects. Read the rest of this entry »
