And from the nice green and leafy picture below to this:-
This is however great!! After 15 months tinkering around with the design of the house we have finally demolished the old house and started the digging process. Apparently we are going to be digging around 2000 tonnes of soil out to make way for the basement and the floor rafts for the house and office, all of which are intended to stay on site. We’re fortunate in that the subsoil is very gritty and well drained so is ideal for non-structural fill.
The Isoquick flooring insulation is on order now and should be arriving around mid-March ready for us to pour the basement and office slabs first.
Theoretically we should have a feed from the site webcam soon and so should be able to post time-lapse video of the progress. I do however suspect this will be largely dependent on my technical ability and how I get on with the software so don’t hold your breath.
