As Saxon Haus nears completion the design and construction team attended the European topping out ceremony, followed by the gardens first BBQ. Topping out ceremonies are traditional on the continent as a plea to the gods to safeguard the new property and its future users. The ceremony started with an introductory speech, before a translated poem was read along with the customary breaking of a wine glass. To complete the ceremony a small tree was also placed on the roof. All-in-all an enjoyable afternoon – Let’s hope their luck continues!
