Phase 1 has begun. Welcome to post-apocalypse Yorkshire…….

Restoration Girl| Demolition of Farm Buildings

In the spring, we began the full deconstruction of the concrete floors and some of the obsolete steel farm buildings. The last time I saw that many eager men gathered around a collection of impressive kit was on my hen-do.   There was every manner of bashing, crushing, hammering and wrecking challenges for our demolition friends and the destruction was TOTAL.

It’s now even harder to imagine this as a family home but- as they say- you have to break eggs to make an omelette. Or scrambled eggs.

The old steel farm buildings – real eyesores – they’re gone too. It’s inspiring to see some of the old stone elevations for the first time in probably decades. The floors are now out of the barns and ready for lovely new concrete beds.   The vast spoil tips can be seen from space, but Houston, we’ve now commenced our mission.

I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed watching “Armageddon”.

Until next time……. Kat xxx
