      I bought this house in 2004, and it was buildt in 1968.
      Nothing has been restored since it was new, so I have been playing with all the funny tools INSIDE the house, and I have buildt the garage beside the pond last year.
      (You can see the garage is not there on some of the winter pics.)

      In the meantime I have also been doing off road 4x4 hobby.

      I made this car...

      Ah, a new airport. When I lived there it was Fornebu, which has apparently now closed. I agree, however, that Norway is a beautiful place, and would heartily recommend a visit to anyone who enjoys spectacular scenery.

      Yes...it is a new main airport now.
      Fornebu is all closed down.
      The runaway is gone and all of the area has got new buildings.
      Some of the hangars (plane garages) is now used as arenas for sports and conserts etc.

      You did live in North of Norway...
      Then you have seen the midnight sun and maby the north light in the winter?

      It is kind of freaky how it is with 24 houers sun in the summer and 24 houers of night in the middle of the winter up there.

      Yes... To build this pond feals more like to play then to work...hehe
      Today it is actually snowing out there.... Not many who build koi ponds in the snow... Then it is real good to have the roof over, but as you see out of my last pics...some of the pond still have no roof.
      I was a little short of materials the day I made the roof so I desided to make it later.

      This is somewhat off topic (but I like to ramble). I lived on Balsfjord, about 50km from Tromso. The midnight sun is unusual. The sun spins lazy circles in the sky for about 2 months at that latitude. Nevertheless, the pace of things slows at "night" just the same. Less traffic, the animals behave differently and so forth. I wasn't there so much during the winter but have seen the aurora both there and elsewhere. That's a treat! I'll return some day but for now I'm stuck digging this hole in my yard (separate thread) into which I intend to put some fish. Oh well, at least it doesn't freeze around here (but that just means I can dig all year long).

      The first snow arrived the night to saturday, but it went over to be rainy and all the snow melted away by saturday.

      Heya Terje,
      Nice looking project you have there, awesome build under some pretty tough building conditions. Also, pretty cool toys errr tools that you have to use. Nice!
      What is the thin black sheeting with the raised dots in it for? Enquiring minds want to know.
      Thanks & Best Regards,
      Jon T

      Very nice!! Better hope you dont get too much snow. Otherwise you might need a lot more support for that temporary roof that you have!

      Red face

      1.5 feet of heavy snow bends metal. Our shed caved in last winter. We learn our lesson. Don't underestimate that snow. Its a good thing it doesn't cost you anything to run that "snow melter".

      Great vid! Now lets get started on pouring that rest of the concrete.

      Some progress...

      Now I have made the concrete wall at the veranda and made the bottom of the tree "wings" of the pond.

      I got the first concrete at friday nov. 20 but I didnt get enough concrete.
      I ordered 5m but got short of about 0.8m so I had to go to the concrete factory and buy 1m more on tuesday.

      The formwork failed a little bit so I had to make some more support before I continued to fill the formwork with concrete in the wall that goes against the house.

      I have have also cast the transition between botton and wall....and started walling blocks in the "wings" of the pond.
