I retrieved the thermos from the quagmire that is our site. It's great that we are onto the next phase, there is no turning back. The house is scattered all over the county and beyond, being reduced to hardcore, tiles re-used and wood recycled and thankfully, nothing put into landfill.
I'm now back to preparations for the new house which, while essential, aren't very photogenic as they are mostly organising trades, and deciding on more of the finer details of the house, which is a job that I've been doing full time since October.
It looks like we may have to have a soil survey done, we were hoping not to (more bills), just as long as it doesn't hold up the build and our tight schedule.
