The first task was to clear the site and ensure the structure of the building was in a stable condition. Plans were continually adjusted as previously hidden sections were revealed.
The second was to bring in the necessary utilities such as power and water so that the building work could start in earnest.
We hired the services of the local witch "la Strega" who was a beautiful 16 year old girl with the gift of divining water, she led us to the position to drill at the location where two veins of water crossed in the rocks below. Water was found at a depth of 90m.
