Our structural engineer Mervyn came round at 8:30am yesterday morning to inspect the kitchen wall. We were on tenterhooks (sort of) to hear the outcome.

After a bit of bashing it looks as if part of the wall is structural but then there’s a bit missing which is slightly odd.

Our proposal to the management company is that we’ll put in a supporting beam which is actually doing them a favour as the building may collapse if we don’t. And then we’ll knock down the maid’s bedroom. Shame really but we won’t be having a maid!

Of course the building’s stood up for a hundred and twenty years already but I’m sure it’s a persuasive argument.

Our plans are due in on Monday for a committee meeting so hopefully we can get things moving.
