The retaining walls for the garage entrance were finally poured last week allowing the contractor to proceed rapidly with constructing the shuttering that will hold the concrete for the remaining section of roof slab for the garage. It is anticipated that the structural works for the garage will be completed by mid-November which will then allow us to proceed with finishing the garden works, walls and pool.
Inside the building, plastering of the first floor walls continues and also the final layer of concrete has been poured over the underfloor heating circuits in Casa Mariana. This week, the underfloor heating circuits will be laid on the first floor of Casa Amelia and the plastering will be finished, prior to the plasterer and plumber moving to the 2nd floor.
The ground floor homes have been cleared out and the stone lintels that are being reused from the original Palacete are being re-installed at the entrances to Casa Luisa and Casa Amelia and in the hallway of Casa Carlota.
The first set of new windows for the facade of the building are due to be fitted this week as are the electrically operated skylights in Casa Amelia and Mariana.
