Unloading Few Tonnes of Sand from Loft

Updated: 16 March, 2016 seen 118

For a minute it seemed that all major removal, junk unloading and demolishing works are over, but then I realized we still have that soil coving floor in loft. And I'm speaking of some 25 cm thick layer of soil, for some reason covered there.

Few weeks ago I was still naive I hoped to remove that soil/sand from the loft without any help but myself. Yup, that was quite a naive. Now, when finally last shingles were removed it was time for another pushup - get rid of that soil. I had a two workers helping me around, and it took us about twelve hours to unload and transport soil to the construction pit.

All we needed here: shovels, wheelbarrow and a lot of strength and patience doing such a monotone work

Black and White photography best describes that day - it was all about sand, dust and gray tones.

It took us some time to dig enough through 25cm thick soil to uncover planks underneath

That day I actually forgot that I'm actually a Drupal Developer. Now, I will most probably print above image on glossy paper (large format) and hang on some of the walls and will fingering to it to all those Sunday rural lovers - owning a rural house - it's a hard work.

Using that wheelbarrow we transported soil to the construction pit (at the end of house). I counted for about hundred wheelbarrows.

As you can see 25 cm thick layer of soil have done a huge damage, In short all beams are rotten and needs to be replaces urgently. But that's another story, which should develop anytime soon.
