At last building work has started. The unsafe walls running along the back sections of our property are being taken apart, brick by brick.
The archaeologists will come along as ground is broken to dig out foundations. They will tell the builders what to look out for. Then concrete will be poured. The existing bricks, plus some new ones, will be used to rebuild the walls again to the same design.
This will take 8 weeks or so. So the sounds I can hear now, of tapping and shouts between the men, will continue right until summer starts.
I have been concerned about these unsafe walls for 10 years roughly. I will feel satisfied that I have improved the property significantly by getting this done. They should last 150-200 years.
Will this major work have an inner impact on all our lives?
