Finally permission has arrived for us to be able to rebuild the anexxe. This building which stands on the roadside at Bellaugello is in a perilous state and desperately requires action. After ten months wait I understand that we can finally start work! We have been informed that we must rebuild not repair.
It is a beautiful sunny day here so I am off to find a heavy hammer and start the destruction myself, the builders are currently busy working on the dining room and kitchen areas. There is some beautiful dressed stone that we will save; two pillars will be re-used for the main entrance gate posts to Bellaugello, and a large section of wall for the embankment behnd the swimming pool. The hand-made cotto roof tiles have been put to one side for future use. I am keen to retain as much as possible of the tradition of this lovely Umbrian farm building.
Another small bit of progress here at Bellaugello gay bed and breakfast.
