Passageway Arch—Gardenside

Arch formwork in the passagefirst stones in placeWe continued working along the back (north-facing) side of the property, building the walls back up to first floor level, so that we could set the “poutrelles” in position to prepare the first floor for the concrete slab.  The passageway between the courtyard and the garden had some ugly concrete blocks supporting a decrepit bit of wood acting as a lintel for all the stone above it. So all this came down and we replaced it with a new cut stone arch.
