Another Set Back

In my ideal world of fantasy peg out would be done.

Back to reality they can't find the pipes running past our place to hook the house up to. I asked the engineer who has cost $3000 so far why.....his explaination "The pipes running past your place were put down in the 1800's, they are made of clay, they were put in by men who we believe were very drunk as they can be between 20cm and 2m below the ground. This is all dependant when beer o'clock was back on the day it was laid in 1890". So they have to find the pipes then send the information into the department of land and property where they will take up to 4 weeks to stamp and THEN we can start peg out.

Demolition started

1st September
The fence went up today, unfortunately they have fenced around all the illegally dumped rubbish which made it very hard for the council inspectors to try and figure out who dumped it...(its not hard as they left their mail amongst the dumped rubbish).

2nd September
Riad started demolition. I have to do a quick plug for him. Nationwide demo has been awesome, We got a quote over a year ago thinking getting a DA through council was easy. He has stuck by us all this time and is doing a quick job now. He consults with you throughout the process to make sure everything is right...Thank you NATIONWIDE DEMOS. Here is a link to his website. Highly recommended for inner west Sydney demolitions.  http://www.nationwidedemo.com.au/ . He gave our kids a sit on the digger machine which they loved.
Demolition in full progress. We are retain the back fence as requested by our neighbours. The 242m looks a lot bigger with the garages removed.

This is the slab of the garages is being removed on the 3rd September.

A pretty yellow skip bin. A lot more stylish that those white ones, I must say.
