The small house 45m2 was up in 11 days!

The small house as you see it, without the roof, was finished in 11 days. The time span was amazing. In this speed we managed to make all the necessary preparation for electrical installation, plugs and switches, and on the spot decide were to make shelves inside the wall.The stairs also connecting the small house to the Utility were made really nice and comfortable to walk on by the two workers from Agapi.

George Clooney from Albania killed the pig, Stefanos and Petros brought their own homemade wine from Agapi and the fire is on!!! The pig was delicious!!!and the wine sweet, the kitchen has moved inside the valley and everyone really enjoyed it. The next one will be the wild goat.

Stone building has started!

The small house 1st day of building.
The most fascinating phase has started. The stone builders of "Xatzis" firm were chosen between several different offers. We started with the utility house to check their technique and make adjustments.  7 workers have come and in 6 days the Utility house was up! They are so fast that it was difficult to keep pace with them and some things were missed!  Read in the construction page more details about foundation waterproofing, drainage walls and electrical installation.
