One afternoon about two weeks ago a crane showed up with the railing.
The frame after the second window will have some kind of separation panel installed, beyond it is the neighbor’s terrace.
And today they started pouring stones into the no-man’s-land between the railing and the rain gutter. My first thought was that a strong enough Föhn wind will blow them onto cars in the street below, below I guess these guys know what they’re doing. My new hope is that they be done by Palm Sunday (former hopes were for end of November, Christmas, end of March…), nearly all the outdoor plants (the trees and shrubs) have bit the dust from the winter indoors. The Beau’s numerous cacti will be happy to be out into the sun next month.
