Clearing the Hold

The first major task was to clear out the hold completely so that we had a blank canvas to work from. To date we have filled six large (6m3) skips, all of which have been located 250m away and have had to be filled using a small trolley to carry the waste. Despite hardly knowing where to start, the following photo's show some of the progress in clearing out.

    I lived in the self-contained flat in the hold. The walls of the living room and partitioned-off bathroom in the corner were made out of old (oak, I think)cinema doors. Cold and damp with a chemical toilet that had to be emptied into the upstairs flat's toilet once a week, and flushed (in one go) straight into the river!
