It is December 2006. Drawings long ago finished and the building papers approved by our city office we are ready to get started.
As days become weeks and months. the First House is still not being build. It is sand that blows over our lot. We do know now, inspired by our friend Michel Schopping, that we will install a water pump system or geothermal heat pump, using earth warmth for heating our floors and water. Also we will construct a 5,000 liter rainwater basin on our roof for flushing our toilets with.
But as long as we haven't got a mortgage we'll be facing an empty lot.
