The cornice on one of the corner
columns in the bedroom has been
stripped of plaster to reveal the
stonework and some layers of
paint chipped from the vaulted
ceiling have uncovered an interesting
base colour .
The shelves and lamp-ledge have been
built in the middle bathroom.
On the roof terrace a technical shelter
has been built, to house the bedroom
air-con motor, and to create storage for
terrace furniture during the short damp
My idea is to cover this with plant pots
to create a raised garden. This will also
give my neighbours terrace more privacy,
and something pleasant to look at.
The Leccese stone slabs have been laid
on top of the roof terrace walls. These
stop the rain from soaking the more porous
tufo stone that the walls are built with.
The structure of the terrace kitchen has been
constructed. This will also house the second
air con motor. The chimney has been reopened
and built a little higher with old tufo bricks that
we'd save from demolition downstairs.
All the plumbing pipes and central-heating pipes
have been laid. Today the electrician starts work
on the entire electrical circuiting.
