They're building a house

Slowly, mercifully slowly, and individually, the fields around our house begin to fill with houses. On Thursday morning I spotted some activity in the field next-but-one to us, indicating that work has got underway on what will be the seventh house start in our immediate vicinity since we moved here in 2002. At this rate, it will take decades for Jeziorki's housing density to reach that of suburban London.

Above: The land has been cleared, and is ready for the builders. The fences are going up. Below: Within two days, trenches for the foundations have been dug and the cement is being poured.

The aim of any house builder will be to have the structure up and enclosed by the winter. The most expensive and time-consuming part, fitting out, can drag on for years.
