Piles of sand, rubble and gravel all examined and marked

The builders have got on with the work at an amazing pace. I've said it before but I'll say it again - when Italian builders (or electricians, plumbers etc ) do show up they work quickly, efficiently ,politely and to a high standard. A great change from the UK where it is the exception rather than the rule to find such old fashioned virtues. Before we moved to Italy we had been nervous about the quality of construction work, but those fears were entirely misplaced. The boyz have observed the work from a shady spot under the olive trees with an occasional foray out to sniff the ever increasing piles of rubble and ever decreasing piles of sand and gravel. 40% of the planned works seem to have been completed, and weather willing the foreman has promised faithfully to be with us at six-thirty on Monday morning.
