This is the tell tell sign of a builder on site. The ubiquitous container that the builders keep all their paraphernalia in. After the portaloo it’s the most important bit of kit on site.
Seeing this go onto our neighbours land is a definite sign that their build is going to start flourishing soon. That is if it would stop raining.
We need the rain for the lawn, the trees and the fruit bushes but I fear that this is not what our neighbours are wishing for on their newly laid concrete slab.
This is suposed to be drying out although it’s getting plenty of drenching at the moment instead.
Seeing the build under way has brought the memories of our own build flooding back. That and the fact I’ve been clearing out our photograph stock to allow for the computer to get a bit more speed back up. Digital photography is a wonderful thing but if you’re not disciplined (which I am not) about organising your pictures you can find things taking over.
So where were we in our build this time last year? We were about a week away from handover and chaos was reining.
More ground works were happening and the kitchen was being installed. Relations with the builders were probably best described as cordial. It was a nightmare if my memory serves me right but looking back now the pain doesn’t seem so bad. Funny that.
I shall watch our neighbours build with the benefit of hindsight and experience but will do my very best not to splatter mud over their rose tinted glasses. If anyone deserves to get this house up and finished its these neighbours as they’ve worked so tirelessly to get their site ready and anguished over the sale of the house they’ve been renovating. Fingers crossed eh!
