Just as a bit of an update. The work on the house in Culebrón still isn't finished. So far as I know the roof is fine, though you will remember it failed to keep out the water the first time it rained. Unfortunately I only have bystanders reports about the rest. A bit of a communication problem with our builder! He seems to have stopped talking to us. He also seems to have stopped work. Hey ho! Such is life.
Thousands of euros spent, work unfinished, 740kms away, furniture rotting in the garage. Ain't life grand.
