From the news it doesn't look as if the structure is irrepairable so hopefully the insurance will pay for a refurb. I'm hoping it hasn't affected neighbouring properties.

No I meant ignorant in the correct sense as I explained in my post. Lou was IGNORANT of the fact that I already knew that no one was inside or injured and that no one was hurt. She jumped to conclusions which were wrong due to her ignorance.

I have some idea, the insurance assessor will come out and assess the damage. Then they will get estimates for the work, submit them and the insurance company will choose which to accept. Then the work will be done.

I'm sorry for your friends Lou, it's not a nice thing to happen to anyone but nevertheless you made incorrect judgements about me. As this is going nowhere I will not comment on this subject again so if you are childish enough you can have the last word.
