Curtain Poles

On the land we had a lot of Casarena trees. They are grown as a money crop. The grow very fast and very straight. They are sold to be used for many purposes including scaffolding and Machuti roofs. You can see in this picture they have been used on our Banda around the sides and up in the roof. I have found another use for them. We are going to use them as curtain poles. We have over 60 windows, so the cost for buying all the fitting would have been terrific. Moses and Fred can be seen here removing the bark and getting ready to stain them. We have had brackets made. I just want you all to know we are not wasting a penny of the hard earned money that is being donated.
