Keys

We picked up the keys to the bungalow on 27th June 2023 after a 6 month sale of the our previous family home, a 3 bed semi reovation we completed back in 2019.

 

It's a 1930s, 3 bed detatched bungalow in Norfolk, set on a plot about 800m2. It had been empty for just over a year whilst a probate of a probate went through.

 

We already had planning in about 2 weeks prior to completing to get the ball rolling (hence the blue planning notice on the fence!)

We had a glass of fizz, and then got to work stripping the place out, these are geuinely the 1st photos i have of the place, within 24 hours of getting the keys!

Kitchen floor tiles got me thinking generally. Have you had an asbestos survey/are you used to looking for it? No wish to teach anyone to suck eggs. If you haven't come across it much before can I suggest HSE, and particularly their 'Asbestos Essentials' as bedtime reading? Looks like fun generally, though!

Good point. It will be low risk stuff but I'd still take reasonable precautions. 

These tiles look old enough to be asbestos reinforced type

Dampness and avoidance  of dust is your ally.

Double bagged and taken to the tip by appointment, no charge.

They will cut through the bags, so boxed first might help.

I did the whole asbestos survey last time, this time I decided not to, and just assumed everything was, that possibly could have been. ffp3 mask on, double bagged and down the tip, although I think I had to pay a small fee, not much though! I’m catching up with updates, so I’ll hopefully have that stage blogged soon!
