Major Work Begins

We are very lucky in that my Dad runs a small development company, so not only is he always popping over to help us out and constantly on the other end of the phone with crucial advice, but he and a couple of his guys will also be doing all the major building work for us. This has meant that we have had to fit in around his other work, but he currently has a few weeks spare so bright and early on Monday they were here with a digger, ready and raring to go!

The side wall needs to be replaced so we knocked a hole in it to get the digger in

The digger is in and the garden has been churned up

We now have a big 2m deep hole (we are on clay soil, hence the depth) ready to be filled with concrete to form the foundations and an awful lot of dirt in our back garden, waiting for a grab lorry to come and collect it.

And this is how our back garden looks now. There is still more to come!
