On Monday our builders started to remove the windows from the old tin cottage so that they could put them into the new staff accommodation that is currently being built. As always, the builders were so fast, these windows were all in by the end of Tuesday.
Whilst some of the guys were removing the windows, others were digging the septic tank and soak-away. Here's how the staff accommodation looked...
Since we were waiting for all the timbers and roof sheeting to be delivered and the plumbers and electrician were busy in the staff accommodation, the builders couldn't continue working there, so they continued with the demolition of the old tin cottage!
What we returned home to was quite something!
Bryan and I were running between all of them answering questions of where everything needed to go, chasing up building materials and working on the design of the new cottage renovation that will be starting in the next few weeks! It was all happening!
By the end of Friday the only thing remaining of the cottage was the roof (which will remain), the main steel structure (to support the roof) and some of the flooring.
We can now see how large this cottage really is and start the fun part of planning it's new design!
His company wanted photos of each agent for their new marketing campaign the following day and since he knew I was a photographer, he wanted me to take the shots for him. So we dashed off to Nottingham Road on Thursday to do the shoot.
Here is the photo that the marketing team chose!
Have a great Sunday and check back next weekend for the coming week's exploits at Kamberg Valley Hideaway!
