Demolition Carrie came to call

We hope you are all keeping well and making the best use of whatever time is at your disposal.

Last time, we left you with the tantalising shot showing a small hole in one of the walls taken from within the old larder…

… whilst this one is taken standing in the anteroom to what was the ladies, and the hole is now a little larger.

Just a little tap with the sledgehammer…

…and the jobs nearly finished! One more decent swing at it and…

…the next thing I knew, the wall was gone.

A little bit of judicious tidying up and then it was time for something else.

Whilst I was destroying one room, Mike was forming another. The walls in the gents-to-be are all now in place, and after this picture was taken, Mike flowed a self-levelling screed over the floor which should dry well over the weekend and be ready for our next work session.

So after a lot of tidying up, and cutting logs (because the forecast indicated a cold weekend), we have had a weekend off. Yes, I know – how weird are we?! We will need to practise this time-off business more as we have both been rubbish at it!

Tomorrow we will be having a chat to prioritise work, given that it will be very difficult to buy consummables now. Luckily, we still have quite a lot of destruction to do…
