Day one of the decking – the frame is in, hurray! I wasn’t sure the poor men would come this morning because it was raining so hard, but turn up they did, and worked through until the sun shone later this afternoon.
I took a couple of surreptitious photos when they nipped back to the van (I thought they might feel judged if I did it while they were working!), hence the photos through the door.
They dug out a lot of mud and rubble, much more than they’d thought initially (a skip is winging its way to us tomorrow).
Then they started on the two-level frame. Because it was raining so hard, the grass section of our garden is now a muddy mess, but never mind! It wasn’t exactly manicured beforehand, but hopefully we can sort it out for summer. If it ever comes.
One of the paving slabs next to the decking is now about to collapse, so it needs building back up underneath, which apparently they’ll do tomorrow, along with putting the boards on presumably, but don’t know how long that takes.
