Precious precious blocks..

I went to check on progress of the Dorset Towers demolition today - it's coming along nicely, tonnes and tonnes of precious imperial measure concrete blocks are being pulled down and crushed and sent for landfill. It will be all over in a couple of days.

Saving a handful of blocks for us to use has proved too tricky for the demolition company, and when you see the scale of the operation, I can kind of understand. It's a bit frustrating though, to see intact and re-usable blocks lying in a heap, just begging to be salvaged.

Meanwhile, we are concentrating on finding some from residential buildings - I have three sites on the go at present, hopefully I'll have something positive to report in the next week or so.

  1. It would be so so so tempting to sneak in under cover of night and snag those blocks. So frustrating!
