The build officially begins

Yesterday marked Day 1 of ‘the build’. A small crew from Vic Restorations arrived early (just after 7) to prepare for a day of wall and cement floor removal. By the end of the day the end wall was down and much of the back floor had been broken up. Today they continued the work, removing the rest of the floor and the old loft. As you can see from the photos they have begun the east wall. Next week they intend to make inroads with the subfloor. We are told things will move quickly now. If the first two days are anything to go by we’ll be at the end before we know it (TFIC – tongue firmly in cheek).

There is no substitute for the right tool

After toiling away with the jackhammer we finally reached a point where we could bring someone in to cut up the concrete. Then it was a matter of removing the ‘giant pavers’. That’s where Ash Bannerman and his Vermeer s600tx rubber track mini loader burst into action.
As my Dad always says – “You just need the right tool for the job!”
