Diary of an Extension Part 2

Day 1 - First task was to clear the site and remove the fence so the digger could get in. The site was then marked out before


  the foundation trenches were dug. Due to the way the house was built in the sixties these had to be deeper than normal meaning more soil to remove 


Day 5 - 6 cubic meters of concrete later and some bricks and blocks and the new floor level was reached. 
The new drain is dug and the manhole fittings are put into place. The side of the extension can be seen in the background. 

Day 6 - The sun comes out as the ground work team dig the soak-away for the roof water.  
  Day 7 - Back comes the rain as the foundations for the new patio are dug. Mud, mud glorious mud
