There now (late May 2013) isn’t any wood left in or on the building.
A whole lot of the wood has been put aside to make some furniture (a big dining table for starters) for the new house.
A chunk of wood is also making it’s way to other houses and projects including a play space / play room for the kids of Robert at ra-studio (who created the initial designs for this project).
With the roof down, the ceilings to the rooms became the new roof.
Well a chunk of it is now down !
The bathroom bits have been stripped out. Mark thought the loo should hang out on the roof for a while!
I’m not sure Pebbles (above) has read the site safety notices !
A bunch of the windows and doors have gone to new homes.
A bunch of the wood is either going into local log burners or being set aside for furniture etc.
A lot of the roof tiles have been set aside for somebody or to be made into place mats etc.
A chunk of the metal was taken to the scrap metal dealers, where the lead, copper and other metal got a bit over £200 !

Well the skirting boards are off, so are all the internal doors and there seems to be a challenge with evolving ideas, to get up the tongue and groove floor boards without wrecking them.
It looks like we may have found a home for a bunch of the skirting boards, internal doors and some of the external doors and windows. A friend is renovating a property in Truro and is going to measure them up 🙂
The loft insulation is being extracted and re-distributed around the village to other properties, new and old.
A lot of the wood, that can’t be salvaged is being broken down and used in my multi fuel burner to heat my current house. Better than landfill or on-site burning it.
Some, but not all of the tiles look set to be looking for a new home.
