Wall removal 2012!

Pressing onwards again. This was done single-handed on 2 or 3 afternoons, and a Saturday.

End of day one, 3 hours of wrecking and getting set up.
From the other side.

 Another 3 hour afternoon.
 From the other side.
 All the waste render and mortar (Mud!)
And the stack of bricks.

 And the end of the Saturday, wall gone!
 Looking onto the outside wall, scary stuff...
 And the hole for the new foundations, you can see the new footing in the bottom curing.
 Quite the heap of rubbish, insane for one wall, I was planning on using it as hardcore under the floor but with the other wall yet to come down its wayyyy to much!

And the final stack of bricks, all the ones at the front are properly stuck together in blocks of 2x2 or 2x3. I rather suspect these bricks were salvaged somewhere, as they were all near the base of the wall at the bottom, clearly too heavy to lift high up in the wall to re-use!

Now, onwards to the other wall, but we need to shift the stack of bricks away first or I'll have no place to store them. I don't want to store them outside as 3 lorry's should be coming relatively soon, one for building material, another for aggregate and yet another for the new chimney.
