Day 3 and there's now concreted footings. However, I'm not particularly happy about the amount of the old base that is just lying there. I was expecting that it would have been removed first so they could lay the new floor properly.
A neighbour has since assured me that they take some away, use some as the hard core for the new base and then concrete up to the damp course in the house. That put my mind at rest a bit as I'm hoping for a decent, well insulated base.
Day 4 - not a lot happened today thanks to the beautiful summer we are having. It chucked it down! We have at least now got a pile of bricks on the drive waiting to be turned into a cloakroom, a side wall and the base. Some of the old base was also removed and skipped, and this pile of stone has arrived.
Hopefully (weather permitting) we'll get some brick work done tomorrow...
