Location: Marrakech, Morocco
An adventure searching for the perfect derelict Riad, through the constuction itself, to the end result (insha'Allah!)

Week 8 - The View!

The close of 2011 saw week eight draw to a dramatic conclusion with the laying of the roof terrace of Riad Romm'an  By Monday 2nd Jan, the concrete had set sufficiently for our project manager Grant Rawlings of Chic Marrakech to get up there and take some photos of our view.  Remember, the original house was much lower than its surroundings as it only had one storey, so it was not possible to see what the view from the new roof terrace would look like.  But we were optimistic that given the location, the view would be of the Atlas mountains. 

We have not been disappointed!

The boys have been working very hard and mixed this massive pile of cement (photo above) to lay the concrete for the roof terrace (photo below).

Also, they are working on the front part of the house, to get it complete and have put in the lintel above the main door.

It won't be long before the front of the house has a lovely new front door, which will be more welcoming than a plank of wood and a number on a stick!
