Extending the Land Terraces Grading Behind the House and Near the Pool

A lot of progress has been made moving earth and reshaping the land around the house. Today that work continued, and some work was done further down the hill to level the ground around the pool.

There is a start of a level area behind the house, where there will be a stone terrazza by the master bedroom (foreground in photo below) and a portico (toward the background) and a small yard/garden.

(Anne was concerned that there wasn’t enough flat area behind the house. Kevin said that this work is only partially complete, it will fit the plan we agreed to, and that we will be able to make adjustments when we visit in May.)

There was a lot of need to level the land near the pool, as that part of the hill was rather steep. They started on that work and have much of the rough earth moving done.

After looking at the pictures, I had one concern about the situation in front of the house. I couldn’t see the olive trees that were to surround the path to the front door.

Here are all the photos from today and a short video, showing work near the house and the pool. And another beautiful spring day:
