I have since rented out the house and just kept the garage for storage of my ever growing collection of toys.
I have since moved into a lovely bungalow (had all the jokes btw), bought it because it had plenty of land and was also in a lovely area and a quiet cul de sac, we are the youngest in the street by 40 years, you can imagine, perfect hedges and gardens all round, every Sunday everyone is out cleaning there cars etc, then there is me, cars everywhere and as of these week diggers vans and skips
The existing garage is a double unit and to be fair is fine to park cars but other than that its all, when two cars are parked in there you would struggle to fit a rizla paper between the two.
How the house looked as we bought it-
Here's the before-
We both sat down and planned what we wanted, me obviously a nice new and much improved garage and her a kitchen (ha ha) we had all the plans drawn up and sat tight, eight weeks later we got the thumbs up, we rang around for quotes to be astounded at the costs of some of them and finally choose our builders.
What I started with-
Monday I came home from work to this-
Have to say I was very impressed on how clean they work. I have never even met my next door neighbour and when I came home she was flirting with the builders, she is in her 90s as well
Off I went to work the next morning after having a quick chat with the builders, it was nice to day dream all day and see what I would be looking at when I got home and how much progress could be made.
I came home to be greeted with this, although not a lot seemed to have been done the back wall had to be dug out 2 metres for the footings as the inspector had found traces of hedge roots, been told they are the worst with them sucking up all the water in the soil
All the trees and plants (well mainly weeds) had been dug up, the fence came down along with the concrete posts-
All the exterior walls had been marked out and cut with a massive kind of saw, a compressor had been brought in to jack hammer the concrete (old garage floor base)
Another couple of angles
