When results exceed expectations: in just two weeks the entire building structure has been built
It’s mid-January 2020. Our construction site is ready to welcome the partner we have chosen that would build our house with third generation wood panels . The production of the panels had already started on November in the super-modern factory located in Vipiteno, a nice village surrounded by the beautiful Dolomites, and is now ready to be delivered.
We are excited and curious to watch live this innovative process of building a house with pre-fab walls. On January 20, 2020 the first truck carrying the wood panels arrives on site and, shortly after, the construction of the house takes place begins. It’s a marvelous lego-type flow of activities that piece after piece after piece, in just 2 weeks, sees the building structure of two floors completed, with all internal partitions too! We are amazed and delighted while watching the construction proceeding.
But then, out of the blue, a terrible pandemic erupted…
A totally unexpected visitor, traveling from abroad probably, paid a not requested and unwelcome visit to our region: the Covid-19 virus. To confront it, a general lockdown on all activities was suddenly imposed by our government to contain the menace. In fact, Covid-19 was a serious threat indeed and we had to act promptly. It was mid-March and therefore we (sadly) closed the construction site immediately, with the hope to be able to re-open it soon.
We thought to be a couple of weeks at worst…. we could not imagine such a long period of inactivity! Anyway, on May 4th, after two entire months of lockdown, the construction sites all over the country were authorized to re-open.
We do look forward to re-open, indeed. We’ve been interrupted in this beautiful building process abruptly. But we want to re-start and to enjoy it till its completion.
