Construction Update 1: Pre-Demolition

Pre demolition
Gina bought her old house for its location and land so it was out with the old and in with the new...

The demolition date to knock down our ex-guvvie house is locked in — Monday 8 September 2014.

After more than a year of design, construction applications, costings and dealing with banks and waiting for approvals, we finally have the green light to knock our house down and start with the new build.

Since the Moving Day post a couple of weeks ago, the electricity and gas lines have been cut, insulation and asbestos have been removed, and construction fencing has been been put up around the property.

We have a semi-demolished house and there is no backing out of this project now!

Here are the photos of how the site looks pre-demolition! It’s pretty surreal driving up to our property with it looking so decrepit and picked apart but it’s also exciting because after such a long wait we’re finally getting started.

Stay tuned for the demolition update next week.
