A Little Here, A Little There Portico, Roof, and Stone Wall

Today’s pictures show progress in a few places around the house.

Portico

Since the portico has supporting pylons and columns, we’ve been surprised that these weren’t dug and built when the house foundation was being prepared. I’m guessing that maybe these elements would have been in the way of building and finishing the main part of the house.

Now it is time for this work to commence.

Roof

Two small steps were taken toward finishing all the roof sections. The photo-voltaic panels, which go on the back of the main roof were delivered, and the underlay for the partial roof elements is being put in place.

Interior Stone Wall

Part of one wall of the main room is going to be covered in stone. The stone setting for this element has nearly been finished.
