Two weeks ago the foundation formwork (shuttering etc) was completed and one week ago the concrete finally poured. After a 6 day wait we were told we could start taking down the formwork. This is a job usually done by the construction workers but I had opted to do it myself both for the experience and to reduce costs. It’s hard work as all the scaffolding and wooden shutters have to be taken down and piled up ready for collection.
