Stage 1 – Demolition!

Demolition of the original beautiful house began, unfortunately it was beyond saving except for the facade which was maintained. If you look carefully you can see how these properties were built with a mixture of mortar and large stones, often using sand from the beach in the mortar. This is one of the reasons it is very difficult to reform older properties in Estepona Old Town since it is very difficult to modify the distribution, if you decide to knock a door in to one of these walls you risk the entire wall coming down!
