The building inspector came round at the beginning of the week and has insisted on us putting radon gas sumps into the floors before concreting so that is what has been going on. Never got to France - SNCF strike and forgotten passports to blame - HAPPY BIRTHDAY VIOLETTE! today xxxx

Those b....... thieves went up to the site last Friday night and they stole everything - cement mixer, roller and other equipment. Now, of course, nothing can be left up there and so this has held us up a little as the concrete floors will all have to be done on one day - next Tuesday I think... Gord and I are away to see Amy in France until the 18th and so no more blogs until then. The wall at the far end of the sitting room will also be knocked through next week and so there will be quite a difference on our return

Another glorious day today - 1 October and probably the hottest day this year. The pipes are down in the kitchen. Next week will be floors and possibly the beginning of the roof which is going to be raised slightly to allow us to expose all the beams in the central area while still keeping to building regs with insulation etc.
