Construction continues ...

Construction progress ...

We got fairly lucky at the beginning, in that all the demolition garbage fit into a single truck load. This saved us a ton of money, as removing this sort of waste here in (very strict) Tokyo is a very expensive proposition, and we needed to file quite a stack of paperwork to get this stuff removed. I have no complaint about that at all - many of the small mountain roads near my home used to be lined with construction waste dumped illegally, and the current system of trying to track it from source is something that I will happily comply with.
