Another one bites the dust 11 June, 2009

Last October the guy who owns this building just behind us decided to have it knocked down and replaced with an 8-storey one-room-mansion building. I like to sleep till about 10:00 but since then it’s been a bit hard. The demolition part was the worst – our whole place shook at times – but the ensuing construction has been noisy enough. Now they’re up to about the 5th floor I think.

Now, on Tuesday evening’s TV news we heard that the real estate company that was overseeing the whole thing had gone bankrupt. On Wednesday morning it was so quiet I couldn’t sleep.

All the real work was being done by sub-contractors, who don’t like to work for nothing of course, so they must have packed it in as soon as they heard the news…
