Comment: The ventilation of the "fosse" as required by Mme Berthome.
Francis laying out the piping to the septic tank.

Wall nearing completion on Friday.

Rain continued, and the masons were not happy.

Pipework to fosse bedded on a bit of concrete here and there, and covered with sand. Luckily no trenches were needed and it was all covered with topsoil to a depth sufficient to protect it.

By Friday afternoon the site around the house looked like a battlefield.

The guest bedroom was plastered on Friday afternoon,

The sous sol shower recess.

On Saturday morning Margaret came to inspect progress.

Next Monday morning Francis carried on digging a drain for the overflow from the 4000 lire rain water collection cistern. Again he struck rock and had to use the Komatsu pneumatic drill. All this rock cutting is costing 85 Euros an hour !  But this time it was only about 40 minutes.

Laying the piping for the overflow and drain from the base of the retaining wall.
