Two Neighbors

We started with the construction of two log houses, side-by-side. We unload the log packs next to the foundation and then we start assembling, log by log.

In the background the construction of other loghouse is slightly ahead and has the roof on already.

This is what we call a greenfield operation: in the middle of green fields (for now).

Unloading the trucks can be a bit of a balancing act. These log packs were 12 meters wide and had to be lifted over a shed. Not much room for error…

Nationalities On A European Building Site

Since we are working all over Europe, we meet people from different nationalities and different cultures all the time. It makes our job much more fun.

Here we are unloading a truck. The truck driver speaks Polish, our foreman speaks Lithuanian, but together they speak Russian. We speak French with the Manitou driver who also happens to speak Polish, and we speak English with our client and German with the architect. Six languages on one building site, that’s Europe for us.
