The old chimney is taken down.
With the beam and strongboys in place it's safe to start removing the brickwork below. Skip number 10 is full and I realise just getting rid of the rubble has cost well over £1000.
The first lift of scaffold goes up and the bricklayers are back for another day's work. The extension is really starting to take shape now.
Next week I'll be grinding out the mortar on the side of the existing house ready for repointing. Nice.
