We decided to dismantle the old house to recover the large amount of timber that could be re-used in the new homes. It was a big job but David finished in time for the Council to complete most of their drainage upgrade project before Christmas holidays.
With the planning permit approved, it's time to move onto site preparation for constructing Unit 1. Rather than demolish the house, it will be dismantled to maximise the opportunities for reusing and recycling. Why buy new materials when there are so many already on site?
