We occasionally invite our safari clients to do a home stay with us at the shamba (farm) to get an up-close look at village life. Usually before a visit, we’ll do a small project to spruce up the house to make it more comfortable for our guests. By small, I mean something like buying new pillows for the guest bed.
But this time as we were preparing for visitors, we really wanted to do some painting. By some, I mean painting a room or two. But as we looked around, we decided that if we were going to have the painters come with all their supplies and equipment anyway, we just as well do it all.
So we painted the entire interior of the house, the exterior, the roof and gate, and the roofs, trim and doors of all the out buildings.
Next up I think we’ll do some work in the kitchen adding some counter tops and cupboards, and Kakasii would like to finish the wall around the compound.
But before we do that, we’ve got two even bigger projects going on in Arusha, which I’ll be posting about starting next week. Stay tuned!
