Elevation to the terrace. At last the house is watertight and airtight (nearly) and relatively secure. Now I can down tools and leave for lunch just locking the door behind me, instead of having to put everything back in the van or down in the cellar store every time I leave the site. We have only had one small thing stolen, but the local builders do not recommend leaving tools lying around. Now I can get all the insulation delivered and bring the things we have bought on the sales for the plumber and electrician Mr Desvergnes who is due to start next week.
