    This project is well underway now, the house is a two bed end terrace, will shortly be a three bed with ensuite, garage, conservatory, downstairs WC and utility room.
    I've got some builders doing the shell, and then its up to me to finish it.

    So here's how everything started out, remains of the old conservatory:

    Start of the demolition:

    Edge beam rebars going in:

    Almost ready for the concrete pour:

    Ducts for the electric cables, one goes to the meter cupboard, the other to the workshop (see my other thread)

    Unfortunately I had to be at work when the concrete got poured, so I missed the huge concrete pump blocking the road up :LOL:
    But got home to see

    The garage and workshop floor both got powerfloated.

    I'll post some more in a bit of the brick work, once ive uploaded them all.

    good morning EddyP

    How much was the ''small skip'' and what are the dimensions ? Can this skip be placed on the road to be filled with organic matter from ''landscaping''.

    I beleive it was £250, in total there were 7 of them here.
    Im not exactly sure of its size, but its HUGE, i think its the biggest roll off skip you can have (footprint wise) due to its size I dont think you're allowed them on the road, but i could be wrong.
