Our neighbouring house, about 30 years old and what we would have considered to be perfectly habitable for a long time to come, is being demolished to make way for a bigger replacement.
The mechanical demolition has taken just two days, and tomorrow the site will be clear. With most of the demolished material dumped into land-fill, I expect.
The delicate control by the operator of the hydraulic arm and jaws is very precise and fascinating to watch.

A few snaps taken from our upper floor window. All a99ii with CZ 24-70mm f2.8 Vario-Sonnar. C&C welcome.

30 years is quite short and so is 2 days.. Great reportage work Joe. Hope the new and bigger building will not take any sun or view from you.

Michel,
The new house will comply with all the regulatory set-backs, and rules regarding overshadowing and overlooking. It will be a larger volume but we'll still get good natural light and maintain our privacy.
