The new machine was finally made operational and plastering started after all the windows had been taped and covered.

Mr Maziere demonstrating to Benoit how to do it.  He then took over while Laurent did the skilled job of smoothing.


Albert about to give the machine its first cleanup.

Francis began to dig the hole for the septic tank (in this case a fosse toutes eaux which takes all soil and waste water).

The cavity is filled with extruded polystyrene insulation (find me a waterproof ecological alternative)

A 3000 litre fosse toutes eaux was delivered on Monday afternoon, but I had to break the bad news that the regulations  required one of 4000 litres so it had to be taken back the next morning.

Comment: The other gang from Faye began to build the foundation wall for the stone facing wall.
