Julette Cordier from Se­cunda says her hus­band – and per­sonal handy­man – Fanie is al­ways on the look­out for an op­por­tu­nity to im­prove their home. “But when he told me his next project would en­tail build­ing an out­side shower con­nected to the main bed­room, I held my breath. I had no idea what to ex­pect.”

A build­ing crew helped with the foun­da­tions and con­struc­tion of the three walls, but Fanie was re­spon­si­ble for the plumb­ing, drainage, elec­tric­ity and tiling of the fea­ture wall. Not yet sat­is­fied, he also laid a wooden deck and built a nifty bench to cover the drain pipes. “It’s like hav­ing a spa con­nected to our bed­room”, says Julette, who now has to com­pete with their two Labradors for who gets to shower first!
