A Lot of Exterior Work Roof Sections, Grading, and Terra Armata

Nearly all the smaller roof sections are complete. All that remains are those near the upstairs terrazza on the north side of the house. Also, the solar and photovoltaic panels are installed. Anne is happy that they won’t really be visible, even from behind the house, given our slope.

The slope in front is looking much better after more grading and soil movement.

Behind the house, grading and terra armata installation work continues.

One important remaining issue is drainage. Given our slopes, we want to be sure rain water won’t run down the hill and into the house or the pool. I suggested some drains connected to underground pipes to channel the water away. Kevin has asked Francisc to look at that and at other drainage options.

Here are the slope and roof pictures.
