Our oldest wants to help with the blog

Our oldest wants to help with the blog. He has his own kid’s camera and made pictures of what he is building on his playground. We had worked on our barn last year where he had helped his dad to lay bricks to close some holes in the wall. So now he is making “cement mortar” out of sand & water to build a “house with barn”.

He has a pile of stones to play and also some wood and he just starts to build. He started with the barn out of stone.

We had a job to clean out a yard and have all of these nice stones from that. The smaller ones he picked up with his wheelbarrow to build on.

Now he builds the fens against the barn and added 2 larger stones as a gate. He laid some wood over the walls as a roof and then added the wooden house behind the barn. The house was started with a round of wooden blocks and a higher back wall. Then he found a few boards screwed together and used that as walls and roof. The house has no door, but a small piece of house was added at the front.

As a finishing touch he laid out a wooden road.
