Working hard on the cabin after a short hiatus. This weekend was spent digging a trench by hand through saturated clay in order to lay conduit for an up-to-code rewiring. Jim (Isobel’s son) gave up a weekends surfing and came up from Dunedin to oversee the re-wiring effort so it can be signed off as legal (he’s a sparky). Went with four sockets, two-up two-down, and a single main lighting run.

May only be another week of wilding pine before we’re back to planting again, more Manuka and other native species to go in on the west coast.
