I love the blue wheelbarrow, don't you? It's there to help with backfilling the main retaining wall so that the cut-away ground ends up meeting concrete.
Here, you can see the drop that needs filling. There were men down there when I visited who looked as if they were disappearing underground to go mining!
I'm really looking forward to seeing the old sandstone foundations in their new home - all buffed and looking like new (well, new-ish as I do want to retain some sense of rusticity).
The old garage wall still stands as if in memory of the house that is no longer.
The next stage is to:
1. Excavate the pool,
2. Form and pour the concrete for the pool,
3. Form and pour the lower-bedroom slab - which will be on the lower side of the site, behind the pool.
See you next time! xox
