Topping Out Ceremony

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!
