Work starts

So finally, the spades appear and work starts!

On Monday the builders, Phillip and Merrick arrive and mark out where the footings are to be dug. Then they disappear, and arrive later with the "toilet" shed. Quite a grand portaloo! We were suggesting they get a sofa and a TV in there!

On Tuesday they start digging, and dig all day until they've dug out most of the footings. A nice clean job, and they cleaned up before they went home so didn't leave mud everywhere. Thankfully no big suprises (one good one - one pipe we thought went across the extension doesn't!) and the soil seems solid enough to hopefully keep the inspector happy when he comes to look tomorrow.
