First week down


So - just an almost bare section now...some timber arrived on Friday for the boxing for the foundations (as a guess). Cannot quite believe that we are finally at this point! The garage is remaining for now, the builders will use it for storage etc and then their plan is to lift it, straighten it and plonk it back down once they have redone the concrete pad it sits on...to me it would be cheaper and faster to demolish it and chuck up a new one but hey!! what do I know!

The concrete pool is being lined with a fibre glass inner once the bottom concrete pad has been relaid...(pinch pinch pinch)

They reckon it will take a maximum of 32 weeks until the house is rebuilt and we can finally go home!

Hope you are going to document it's progress.

Remember... it will look like it is rushing along, and then it will seem to slow to a snail's pace. But will still be moving forward. That is how these things go.

Joy and patience.
