7 July 2007 - The Ground Floor

We needed the ground floor in order to get an official valuation done for mortgage purposes. Building on the plot came to a standstill for a few weeks while we waited for the money to come in. Meanwhile, the carpenters were busy preparing the first floor and the beams and roof (see next post). View from the footpath that runs past our house.
Our roof tiles will be similar to the ones on the house through the window.

Holes drilled into the concrete to hold the screws connecting the frame to the foundations.
The base of the house.

The living room and terraces.

What are these metal pieces called?
