Welcome to Sara and Alec's Blog. We are embarking on a journey of creation.
As some of you will recall we purchased our piece of land in Northern Italy a couple of years ago, and have been in the planning process since. We now have all our permits and are commencing the project.

So, this is the house as when it was purchased:

Many things have happened since starting the process. We have rerouted electrical wires (to get rid of overhead lines, which we view as ugly), drilled a well, dealt with torrential rains, dodged calabrone (an aggressive large wasp like insect that hurts when they sting you), loaded 2-40ft containers in Calgary and finally, knocked down the house in preparation for excavation.
Here are some pictures of the demolition process:
