A new material order has been placed, but will take 2 weeks due to them needing to special order in some of the boiler platform materials, so I best make good use of that time (And I have)
Commence picture dump:
The controversy wall... Like anything I have wanted to do during this renovation, taking down stuff which isn't required seems to be a bit of a touchy subject as it involves "extra" work and what seems like an endless passion for wrecking things which appear to be perfectly good and just need a lick of paint..
Upon investigating I convinced myself that the "wall" was an additional skin.. which wasn't resting on the foundation, but instead was laid ontop of a floor, ontop of the old floor tiles?!
This is looking back against one of the original pillars of the porch, which consists of brick, a 1.5m concrete round pillar and some random concrete..
Another 20-30cm gained..
Dug a hole downwards to the foundation to find the inspection chamber for the sewage on the other side..
Now onwards we go with tearing up the "lounge" before concentrating on burying services below it all and concreting over it again..
