One week in and we have filled our first skip! When the new skip arrived I wondered how they orchestrated the changeover.
The skip is covered and lifted onto the truck.
At this point the full skip sits on top of the new skip.
Both skips are then placed back onto the road.
And finally the full skip is lifted back onto the truck leaving the new skip in position. An elegant solution.
The brickwork continued. The electrician visited. The structural engineer returned. Apparently we are going to save a fair bit of money as the chimney breast in the kitchen does not continue all the way up through the rest of the house – though I’ve been saying that for some time now (it’s always good when the experts catch up).
For some reason Miss Rose has managed to claim the top of the cat tree – she looks very proud of herself.
