Demo Progress

Asbestos guys have been through and removed a whopping 232m2 of sheets from the house; pretty massive considering the real estate said there was none to be found when we bought it...

Poor fellas were just finishing off in 40degree heat, wearing the white space suits i'm used to wearing myself. The excavator has been dropped off and the house is now in a pile of crappy gypsum board and rusty nails. Its great to see some physical progress and what better with a nice big wrecking ball.

Sheep shearing station had better days
Dinning room now has a better view

Our mini-site supervisor used her super natural powers and blew the house over

Progress after this is looking good, we are on track for a slab christmas party

Goodbye Hovel

Success! we have signed our paperwork with the bank; and we have officially pressed the "GO" button with our builder. What it seams to be a matter of days we have started the demolition planning; removed the power from the property and said goodbye to our old rental.

Here is some photos of the old girl before we take a wrecking ball to it :)

Unfortunately the only thing worth saving is the new roof, the rest has to go

and with all things good and bad; our current rental has had the hot water system fail (after 13yrs of use!) and our party wall fell over in a storm, more things to sort out.

 Fortunately no one was hurt, and the rain water tank protected the house
