So - instead of buying a house in Zimbabwe - we're building one!!!

Anyone else in the process of building a house "from afar"????
DH has "employed" one of his brothers and a cousin to find staff (architect, builders etc etc) to do it but it feels quite surreal that we're going to own a 5 bedroom detached house in "the sticks"

2nd home - for the time being - certainly until the DS's have grown up and left home - hopefully by then the country will be back on it's feet and we'd be able to move back there.
my FIL has given us a (large) plot of land in the family "village" where we can build it - so even if we don't ever move back their permanently whenever we've got enough money to go and visit family we'll have somewhere to stay. Plus of course when we're not utilising it any family that have gone "home" will be able to stay there too

I was in the eastern highlands! Memory a bit dim about the geography - but I visited chimanimani and did a trip that I think was to the south - pungwe valley? Is cashel valley down that way?
Any places near you I might have heard of?
One day I would love to go back - it is so so sad what's going on there now.
