We’re building a new terrasse off the lounge of Maison Olive on the Bastide les Amis property in Menerbes, Luberon Valley, Povence in France.

This week, the foundation concrete arrived – much excitement!

The large concrete pre-mix truck arrives from Sylvestre in Coustellet

Final adjustments for the pouring

Nicolas brings his little machine nearer to collect the concrete

A final mix and a check on the consistency

The 'dancing bobcat' on the left waits its turn

The first load goes in

There goes the bobcat's first load

Quite an art to carry the slop when driving flat out!
