So we are a week in and there has been a lot of progress! The trenches are pretty much done ready for the concrete woop! I dont think we realised how quickly things would progress. After digging started on the Friday, by the Wednesday Andy’s uncle said that the building inspector would be checking the foundations to make sure they were deep enough on the Friday (!) We then would have had the concrete poured on Saturday, however we had a little delay as a brick wall was found when digging.
The building inspector decided that this area could be filled with concrete, and then the rest done after this has set.
So currently the rest of the concrete is coming on Wednesday, and Monday/Tuesday will be finishing off the trenches
Eek very excited!
Timelapse of week 1 below! Note that we only got up to Thursdays footage on the camera because we stupidly didn’t delete the previous footage we had copied over but luckily could use our ring camera footage phew!
Just a sidenote that it has been a mammoth job getting rid of the soil, farmer Charles kept filling up his skip then taking it to his farm 15 minutes away, as you can imagine there was alot!
Stay tuned for more updates!
