Wa hoo, that was a roller coaster ride. It went on for ever… well maybe 60 seconds. It is the first one in 6 years that had me under the doorway.
Quick up date:
I checked High Street very early this morning. Just in case they lock us out again….. There is not a brick out-of-place. Some very very minor gib damage, and no immediately apparent structural damage. ( A few gib screws have popped). A good result!
Surprisingly the whole row is still standing.
The Engineer will have to do Another Level 2 assessment, but it looks Very Good to me.
It looks to me as if Christchurch has been very lucky.
I am devastated that the Christchurch experience has not been heeded and many houses in Canterbury/Marlbrough have had unreinforced brick chimneys collapse through their roofs. A very simple safety inspection is very important… Put it on your must do list!
Some links below for my out-of-town cousins!
Stay safe today. I’m off to check the water bottles.
