Over these past weekends I've been working on an extension to our new home. It's all been approved by the local council , building control and other interested parties. The house is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty so it has to look right - much the same as the rest of the house which have parts dating back to 1858.
The first job was to demolish the old flat roof car port - using my sds drill and sledge hammers and calling on the kids and Jo's help an much as I could.
The river burst it's banks during the works and was an inch away from flooding the house. We worked on diverting it for 2 days and kept a 24 hours watch on the levels (I finished my shift at 4:30am and Jo took over). Nothing got in the house and we're laying wider pipes to take more stream water away and prevent it happening again.
