A Floor at Last!
Today we had everybody here; Cyrille and his 2 men, the plumber and the electrician. So I had lots of decisions to make. I've no idea what would happen if we weren't here; the men would have to arbitrarily decide where to put things. And, as most of you must know, 'Madame La Patron' would usually think that the result was total crap!
As you can see there's going to be a lot of pipes in the concrete! They're putting down (and up the walls) plastic to counter the damp which appears when it rains. The house is built on rock and so the rainwater can't sink in, but flows down the hill and through our kitchen!
I think that, by the weekend, the stairs passage and the downstairs bedroom/shower-room and boiler room will have a floor, and then they can order the cement lorry to come for the kitchen/dining room at the beginning of next week. So, hopefully, by the end of next week, we'll (Sue and me) be ready to start plasterboarding.Being English, Sue offers the workmen a cup of coffee, so she had a trayful today.
