3rd of November 2011- Inside the house, possums and burst water pipes

On this day, as the title of this post suggests, we took photos of:

27 September 2011 – cleaning up house and garden

The pile of stuff for the skip begins to mount. There were a few things left behind that we liked. But not many. And as the floor and walls were revealed the state of the house was worse than we expected. Timber powdered by termites and rotten bits everywhere. Mostly as a result of dodgy construction in the first place.

Clearing out the growth from all around the house to let the air in to dry it out. Sad to see the hydrangeas go but it had to happen…

Started to find the piles of rubbish buried under carpet and other stuff in the garden. Broken bottles, old medicine, bean bags etc.  Agh the ‘treasures’ to be found.

Settlement Day

Video and info and more photos of our first day on the scene  to follow. It’s amazing how much has changed in the first half a day.  Bedtime now.

Oh better put some inside photos up.
