Timbrel Vault -- beginning the floor slab

After a weekend in the city we went back to Cheverie to work on the formwork. The pieces started coming together early in the week, but a few rainy days slowed down progress. We rearranged our week so that we spent Wednesday and Thursday in the city to wait out the rain then returned to Cheverie for the weekend. We finished a fair amount of the formwork, which is turning out to be pretty complicated.
