With the house all mine at last – demolition is underway! Not one to waste a moment, we immediately called in the builders and got to work on the structure of the house: raising the roof and digging deep footings to support the new deck and the ingoing steel. It all seems a bit extreme but I suppose it’s better than a slow slide down the cliff in years to come! So, under the early Spring sun and the watchful eye of Ted the Groodle, the monster digger and mulching trucks arrived, and the walls, windows, ceilings and roof were removed tile by tile, slab by slab. It’s scary to see a house in a skeletal state but every time I look upon that incredible view, it stirs my courage and stays my resolve to press on!
