Big earthworks to dig out the patios have left the place looking much tidier. All the straggly weeds have gone and its a bit lunar landscape. But this weekend is for the more dramatic stuff with a big excavator coming and massive dumper trucks. All the earth and debris is going to be buried in one of the fields. Sheds to be pulled down for the new-build have been cleared by unemployed teenagers.
Water now due to be connected on November 12, worktops on Tuesday, doors all in and the woodburner on Nov 1. Time to arrange a moving date. Can I drive a 10-tonne dumper truck?
