Its seems that every single house around us is being gutted at present and the noise is terrible! We live in a back to back terrace house and there is work going on in the two houses to the right, the house behind and two houses along to the left (although the two houses next to us on the left are thankfully quiet.

What makes the noise so noticable and thus so annoying is the fact that all the major house walls are connected, so bang on them with any great force (for example to rip out an old kitchen) and you can be heard down the whole street. When this is happening in a load of houses at once it makes you want to stay out of the house as much as possible. Thankfully because I’m working I can do that most of the time, but it doesn’t make a pleasant wake up call in the mornings.
