A House in Transition

It's not our house!

Our former neighbors (from before we moved to Laos) are doing severe renovations to their house this summer.

They are adding a full second story and completely gutting the main floor. They are moving all the main floor rooms counter-clockwise. So the kitchen moves into the dining room which moves into the living room which moves into the bedrooms which move upstairs. Only the bathroom is staying where it was.
We went over one evening and brought them enjera and two wats (Ethiopian bread with stews) and shared it in their former dining room on the floor. Then we stayed and helped pull nails, bash plaster, sweep and sweat.
