Retaining Wall in Keston Village, Kent
Click on the thumbnails above to watch Scott Berry and his team at S M Berry Building Contractors Ltd as they endeavour to build a retaining wall in Keston Village, Kent within the next seven days starting on the 24th May 2010....
On day one Scott, Elliot and Jed dug out and concreted the remaining section of the foundation for the retaining wall in the rear garden. All the materials were then moved manually during the hottest day of the year (peaking at 29 degrees) leaving everyone exhausted and ready for an early night!
During day two Scott, Elliot and Jed began to build the retaining wall, fortunately for the team the weather had cooled down to just 18 degrees. The team have been supplied with plenty of liquid refreshments to keep them going through the heatwave and the most wonderful goodies... including some homemade banana cake!
Day three of the seven day project saw Jed continuing to help Scott and Elliot to lay even more bricks!
After a delayed start on day four - because the rain made it impossible to lay the capping bricks - the team managed to almost complete the wall leaving them with just a small section to finish during the morning of the fifth day. Elliot and Jed then cleared the site and removed the plant ready for Nicola and Tim to enjoy their garden this summer.
S M Berry Building Contractors Ltd managed to complete the retaining wall two days early and on budget! Scott and his team will begin their new fourteen week extension project in Badgers Mount, Sevenoaks, Kent on the 9th June 2010.
