It's not me it's "U." "serious irremediable defect....." Whether you choose
to turn it into a monolith or not is another matter, but being at the side
of a road it ought to be easy enough to get a crane and make a half decent
job of lifting the whole roost out and relocating it. You probably need a
bat-fondling-licence to do the job though. And of course a client who's
prepared to fund such extravagance.
