Chaos as a way of life. Part 3.

Destruction has started. The guys destroying my house said they have never seen worse woodworm. It’s a good job I hadn’t believed the surveyor’s opinion.

Where to tread was the problem

But the worst was soon over and we were left with a huge hole where the floor had been.

Floorboards, pipes and joists came out.

The muck of decades was removed – everyone who had worked on the house, except me, had used the floor void as a rubbish dump.

Holding the rear of the house up.

Some uncomfortable views came to light. A previous builder hadn’t bothered to collect a few extra bricks.

But this was the worst view and came to light around day 2 of the work. Things get better from here on in.

More soon. Follow me for updates.
