End of an Era

The old chook shed met a timely end on the weekend.
Considering how dodgy the construction felt after 13 years of service and many, many repairs, the chicken shed took a bit of effort to demolish. Most of the wood came from the Tip Shop, and the roofing iron came out of a skip around the corner as Martin and Angela were having their house re-roofed the same week. The plastic over the netting on the open area was recycled from a previous greenhouse. The large timbers horizontal on the ground were rotting but still sturdy enough.

Can you see the smile on his face? Of course you use an axe for demolition work.

The point at which we curse the invention of reinforcing weldmesh for concreting. Who put that in there????

it seems hard to see where the old shed fitted on the left. The apricot tree and black currant bushes were leaning over it, so they occupy the now empty air space.
