Staircase construction

Sandro welded the runners for the new staircase today. As with everything he does, they are fixed into the stone wall and very sturdy. He is welding in the library room upstairs on which he recently floated a smooth cement floor above the new voltini in the loungeroom. The Italian power system means that every time he welds, our lights flicker. He had intended doing a full day today but left before lunch because it had snowed for several hours and he was worried about getting out of the valley and over the hills to return home. Before he left, he re-installed the ladder for us to access the first floor…as well as a bannister to hold onto!
