Put a lid on it!

We have started to put the roof on the children's home. It is going to be a thatched roof and will look stunning. The house looks kinda small here but it really isn't! This is the side view, the house is actually an oval shape and the Zulus call it a rondaval. Usually they are one story and round or oval but we decided to put a second floor on so that they can can have extra rooms. We are so excited . Cant wait until its finished and we can move Cindy's family in!

That is so wonderful!!! Do you have a set number of houses you are building so far? Or are you just building one at the moment and waiting?
