On the 27th of August 2012 represenatives from the working commitee got together for an unofficial opening of the East Gate. A lot of hard work have been put into the building and finally we were able to gather for a cup of coffee, kind words and share a symbolic cake.
It has taken roughly a year to build the house and we could not be happier. We want to give grand thanks to all who have helped us make it happen - family, neighbours, friends as well as carpenters - without such a wonderful collaboration between people this would not have been possible!
