Pre-Construction Destruction

Earlier this month we received our permit from ANAM to cut down the four pine trees that stood in the way of our future terrace. A few days after that, during a very heavy rain storm, our contractor arrived with a chainsaw and a two-man crew. Two men and one chainsaw made short work of the four trees. All the trees fell where they were meant to fall, without landing on the house or any of the flowers and bushes we have planted.

The yard looks a lot different now. Marco had to re-string several lines and wires for birdfeeders. This is, of course, only the beginning. Once the construction commences, chaos will reign for a few weeks. We hope it does not drag out to more than a few.
