A shed and a watertank
Jeff's project for this holiday was to build a storage shed and install a water tank to catch the rainwater from the shed roof; both are small, the tank holds just 1000 litres but we also have the spring water.

There are two reasons why both are small: firstly the ground is uneven (read rough) so a site had to be leveled, secondly to have the water tank gravity feed they had to be placed on the ridge above our caravan - carried up - we wouldn't have been able to manage anything bigger/heavier.

I said Jeff's project but it became mine also as I was needed as his assistant, helping when I could.

Finally after several days (several days because construction was rain interrupted) the shed was complete and the water tank installed
ready to gravity feed down to our caravan next holiday.

There were a few distractions along the way. When the ground was being cleared and leveled weka decided that it was a great place to explore

...and to carry out their mating ritual.
