Thanks Mark. Took a while to shake it off, all good now. Sledgehammers are so last year.. Weapon of choice, Dewalt 54 volt SDS Drill, set on hammer, with a flat chisel bit. A seriously good bit of kit, highly recommended. I pinged off the bricks and cleaned them up. James palletised them ready for selling. 1000 or so at a £1 each, he gets to keep whatever he makes, job done.

Got the acrows down after a bit of remedial work on the joists, really pleased with the space. Using hard hats as the previous owners (the council) knocked a hole though in the loft and left boulders up in the void. Found a skull breaker today when ripping down another ceiling just balancing on a joist.

Fingers crossed hopefully cleared them all out now Duncan.

Opening from day space through to what will be the hall is quite the challenge. Very slow going, mostly sandstone with a couple of granite lumps strategical placed to cause us grief. There’s a flue built into the wall creating a void and some later mods done by the council so it’s a bit of a mess. Hole is now open and we’ve started to make good and install the bearing pads. Looking forward to getting it sorted and secure.
