The demolition team has begun in earnest. Their plan is to access the roof from inside (no ladders!) to remove the chimneys and edge tiles that are concreted in. They will remove the ridge, then the whole roof will unzip.
After the roof, they’ll remove the overhanging first floor extension by hand. It’s a safety concern because the building is so close to the neighbours at that corner. I’ve been looking forward to having that carbuncle removed from the house for years!
Our neighbour’s tree blew half-over in the storm last Monday, and the tree surgeons have been busy removing it today. I like the way they strung it up by the oak it landed in and slowly lowered it in the road, cutting section by section. It’s a busy day down the Lane!
Steve the Site Manager and Dulux have been preparing the site for the demolition team. Their office hut arrived today and they’ve been setting up an additional store and mess area in the garage. They have to refelt the garage as most of the roof has blown off in recent storms. The rest of the prep involved tree protection and door-removal.
