Cellar Construction Completed

By 4pm on Day 4, the cellar construction has been completed.

Our cellar has now been wrapped in black plastic (which I learned today is not for waterproofing, but only to protect the insulation). Now they have started burying it in the ground!

Last time I stood there it was still more or less a field, and we were saying “the lounge will be about there” and so on. Now it is easier to visualise!


I am not how much longer they were planning to work, but they still had only worked on two sides, so we expect that this will take until the middle of next week to be completely done.

We have now received the first three invoices from Viebrockhaus – the first for the planning, the second for the groundwork and the third for the cellar.
