Hi there

I am shortly about to have a double side extension on my house(i'm not doing the work, family member is) and thought i would try and give a start to finish project view with a few photo's a long the way, there may be a delay in between uploads due to work commitments but will try and do as much as possible..

Right then, first job is to remove the hedge and then the wall so we can get the skip in the front garden, i am having the driveway widened anyway so no money wasted here :huray:

Hopefully i can get the digger in shortly and start getting all the footings dug out, get the building inspector up here sharpish :sad: Pay him just £480.00 to give the ok to the depth of them and then get the foundations in.. :wink:

I will upload photo's of current land as it is now before anything get's dug up though, just to give the you a feel for whats going on here.. :scratch:

More photo's of access/current house before the extension work begings in a couple of weeks hopefully, will be uploaded shortly when Virgin solve my email fault :wtf:

Managed to pull the front wall down at the top of the drive since it's stopped raining :huray: :huray: in order to widen the access and be able to get the skip into the front garden so not to upset the neighbours during the building works :-)

Sounds like it could be an interesting project but I think you can only really show work that you have done personnally in this section of the forum?

hope it all goes well tho...

:dunno: :dunno: :dunno: :dunno: :dunno: :dunno:

Was really an idea to show others how work progresses from start to finish on a side extension as when i was searching the forum i found nothing to look at or follow :dunno: :dunno: :dunno: :dunno:

We like to see all work on here by Diyers and tradesmen.

It's up to the mods team to make sure it's not hijacked by people spamming!

Looks like you got your hands full there 'tho I might just alter the title slightly. At a quick glance it looks like you're building a very big extension :wink:

As long i am not breaking any rules of the forum i would love to keep posting up the progress for people to follow/look at,i am a bit like root and like to see things start to finish :thumbright:

Be no spamming mate can assure you of that :-)

Moderator6.. please feel free to change title, just noticed it looks like 2012,53Sq mt, would have been a mighty great extension, it is a 53 Sq metre of floor space ONLY :cb :cb

Thanks

As i said, wall taken down today and the Privot hedge chopped, about 2 foot to the wall height behind it in order to get the skip over it and on to the grass, before the real work starts :huray:
