The old house is nearly gone! Although the footprint for the new Gorgeous Green House is the same as the old, not much of the original structure is strong enough to remain – one doesn’t argue with the engineer! Thank goodness the rubble is going to fill in the cavity. Carting that to land fill would be green guilt inducing. So here is the photo gallery:
The green aspects of the process in terms of the recycling and re-using of elements of the house were covered in the post of 15 May 2013 so I won’t bore with repetition.
Demolition isn’t very comfortable but it does mean that things are happening and it all feels very real.
We’ve also been so uplifted by the measures of care the building team are taking to protect plants in the garden and are so appreciate the opportunity that they were screened off until they could be moved. Thanks Prith!
Not being the type of people to miss an opportunity to celebrate, it was wonderful to share this milestone with special friends over the weekend. Thanks guys. Can’t wait to be sipping the champagne in comfort on the new (re-cycled plastic) deck come May next year.
