Michel fixing the distribution connection for the underfloor heating.  There are 5 circuits each with taps and balancing valve.

After all the circuits are fixed they are filled with water and 'inflated' under pressure using this hand pump.

The circuit under the stair.

The next day Mr Augustin and his little gang arrived to do the screeds.

The screed being laid in the sous sol shower room and laundry.

The finished levelling screed over the hemp and lime insulating screed, which could not be finished smooth enough  to receive tiles.

While Mr Augustin did the screed downstairs, we cleared up and prepared the edge formwork for the screed.

The temporary stair (echelle de meunier) to the mezzanine had to be removed and temporarily fixed to go down to the sous sol.
