The roof is on

It has been a few months since I posted on the building work out the back.  Construction work has continued & slowly the building is looking more habitable, particularly now the roof is on.

Bezukhov has been monitoring progress but has also had help from Cagney, though I suspect that ‘help’ was mostly nosiness, particularly when the workmen were roaming around the building site, in their high visibility vests.

The big yellow crane

It has been some time since I posted on the building work out the back.  Since then, buildings have gone up in the left & centre of my view.  Trees were also cut down.  In the last couple of weeks, building work has recommenced on the right side of my lounge window.  This building looks to be higher than the others that have gone up.  So far the few trees in front remain but there is no guarantee they will stay.

There has been a very busy yellow crane moving things around.  Bezukhov & Thomas have been monitoring progress.  Cagney & Phineas have been letting Bezukhov & Thomas monitor progress whilst they do their own thing.

The Big Blue Crane

Building work out the back has been steadily progressing Fencing for back gardens has gone up, along with paving stones.  All this work has been overseen by both Bezukhov & Cagney.

Whilst we were being distracted by the development of the back gardens, further along more work was being done behind the trees that are still standing.  However, it was difficult to avoid this building work on the day the big blue crane came.  This time the boys were a little overwhelmed to be shouting out orders to the workmen.



Last week saw some of the trees out the back being cut down. This is continuation of building work previously reported on.  The view out the window for the Toyboys is changing rapidly.  (Atilla is too busy chewing the chair to be concerned about the view).  The buildings are fast being completed.  The roofs are on, complete with chimney pots.  The doors and windows are being fitted. 

Here are Cagney & Bezukhov wondering where all the greenery has gone & wondering where all the wild birds will live & play….

Watching the workmen

It has been some time since I posted on the building work being done at the back of the flats on what was originally greenbelt land (Red Crane post).  It is still going on but now the buildings are going up just beyond the trees (that have not been cut down yet).  There has definitely been less activity on the wild bird front. 😦 

Because of the close proximity of the buildings, the Toyboys now have a ringside seat, or rather, perch, & often take the opportunity to watch the workmen….
