The rebuilding of a home that was destroyed in a gas explosion in Clacton more than three years ago is almost complete.
Nine people were injured in the blast which reduced one family's home to rubble and wiped out a second home.
Tendring District Council says construction has taken longer than expected because of "boundary issues".
Paul Honeywood, the cabinet member for housing, said: "It has taken longer than we would have hoped but we came across the problems with the boundary and they had to be sorted out.
"We are almost at the finish line now and it will be great to see the new home occupied."
