Two years ago, the work was underway at Tiny House. We had moved into a rental apartment close by and were trying to live a semi-normal life. As the demolition and renovation got started, and immense slag heap (love that word, slag) grew just outside what would become our main doorway. It stayed there for more than 6 months after we moved in. The photo below does not really do it justice - it was taller than me and almost 5 meters long. It was, eventually removed to make fill in for the new driveway. What was left was a dead space, just grey dirt in between two olive trees. Below houses the septic tank. So while we didn't have the ugliness anymore there didn't seem to be many options.
