How I'm spending my vacation

I'm a bit quiet online lately because I'm on vacation.

I've always heard that one must take a vacation quite opposite to his daily activities. Since I work in an office, some physical work in the country side could do me well. And so we amuse ourselves by transforming our new vacation place slowly into ours. It's a lot of hard & exhausting work, demanding our our muscles , but yet very motivating to see the changes take place.

some before & after pictures as requested by Zusjesenzo:
