That stuff was the remains of the termite riddle front wall, which came out after last week's concreting disaster.
With that all cleaned up things were ready for the chippy (who is also an excellent concretor, naturally) to sort out the floor.
And that patch on the left was not the worst of it. But now you would never know!
The next job was removing another wall-
As we were knocking that lot off, i heard a large truck approaching. Why should there be a large truck approaching?! I turned to the chippy and he just said with a smile "I don't muck around".
So that was Thursday, yesterday we were back at it, putting that timber to good use.
I'm amazed how good it looks already, and how quickly it's coming together. Off to the block again now, running wiring &c.
You will notice there's no mention of cycling (in spite of this being a blog about cycling). In spite of the name of this site, determination and persistence can only do so much. At the moment survival is the aim, and even without spending time on the bike there is a solid headwind on that road. Not much longer though and the house will be sorted. And then it's back on the bike.
