Mr Sandman...

A previous occupier of the house decided to build-up the outside front bay by making a raised concrete area. In doing so, blocked up the ventilation bricks to the sub floor, adding to the damp problem.

We had the concrete removed to expose said vent bricks, but at some point, someone decided to fill the bay with sand. WHY, WHO?!

For some time the sand acted like a giant litter tray for the local wildlife. Before being able to tidy the front the sand had to be shifted. Without a wheelbarrow I transported the sand from the front to the back in 15 bin bags. Who would've thought sand could weigh so much!



2 hours, 8 bags of gravel and some weed membrane later, job done...for now.
