Old Council House Wash-House Demolition

Recommended Posts

Hi guys.  

I am in the process of buying my house from bernicia and the first thing I plan on doing is having the old outhouse flattened. My house is the middle one of a terrace of 3, so my outhouse isnt attatched to the house in any way but stands alone in the middle of my garden. It has cold running water and electricity in it but just a basic feed from the main house.

Would any of you know a local company that would safely demolish it for me and remove the rubbish and the approximate cost of this? 

Thanks  :ball:

Looks like a problem nobody has encountered before. 

Before purchase completed I wonder what advice Bernicia would give you on disconnecting water & electricity from main building? 

Can't find anything on their site that suggests they provide assistance in these matters but could be worth a try, that's if you haven't already done so.

A couple of houses in my Dad's street have had their wash houses taken down.

Try Eddie Mount builders in Bedlington. Local firm and very good at all building related matters.

Keep the wash house and turn it into a garden room.

We may all be going 'back to the future' and need the old ways.

thanks everyone,

 

Eggy- I would rather learn to do it myself via you tube videos, than trust any advice from Bernicia. The amount of problems I had after they 'improved' my house was laughable! 

Reedy- my other half knows Eddie well, so I might get him to have a word, even if it is just for advice. 

Maggie- I would keep it if it was on the side of the house but it takes up half my garden, and is in such bad condition it is bordering on dangerous. So its the first thing to go when I get the chance. Even if I got someone to disconnect the leccy and water supply and take the roof off I would probably be able to pull the rest down myself. The wheelie bin once fell over in the high winds and knocked some of the bricks out of it, so that tells you how safe it is!

      A caring and much-loved great-great-grandmother has enjoyed birthday greetings from over 3,000 people as she turns 100.
      Former care assistant Rosie Cochrane entered her second century on January 21 this year.
      Although lockdown means the celebration, from her assisted living home in Bedlington, wasn't quite what she might have planned before the pandemic, granddaughter Christine Logan was determined to ensure 'Granny Rosie' was showered with love on her special day.
      Northumberland County Council fostering team manager Christine said: “Growing up I would watch her and my mam care for others, and just knew I wanted to do the same.
      "She has always put others first and cared for others where she can, be it family, friends or through her work. She is a real inspiration and it is because of her I chose my career path and have also fostered to help others in any way I can.
      "It has been a really difficult time not being able to see her. She loves to get her nails and hair done, go shopping and travel. But we know we must do all we can to keep her safe and ourselves right now.
