Oct 2017 Basement and Treatment Room
Once the old derelict house had been demolished the excavation of the basement and massage treatment could begin. The basement is an essential place for storing equipment and utilities to support the functioning of the retreat (boilers, solar system batteries, heat pumps, electric boards, temperature control etc.). It took about two weeks to clear the site ready for the foundations for the basement. All of the material excavated was recycled and reused to make the new land terraces for the outdoor accommodations. To think we very nearly opted not to have the basement and extra storage space in the master planning, it would have a huge mistake!
