Here today, gone tomorrow

Demolition of the house began on Thursday, and they wasted no time. The entire house was gone by the end of the day. Unfortunately, we do not have any pictures of the demolition because we were both stuck in meetings all day and could not find time to get down to the house while it was being demolished.

These pictures show the house with all of the wood and mechanical material gone, but the foundation is still partly there. At least the concrete slab and some of the foundation walls are present. Today, they removed the remaining material.


  1. At last! You should be singing Etta James song.

    Doesn't the lot look big without the building?

    I'm glad for you that you're making progress. The kids must be excited.

  2. Simon - I have some pics of the demolition. Next time you're by let me know if you'd like me to email them to you (and I'll need to get your email address).


  3. Thanks Jeff, that would be great. We'd love to get some pics of the demolition.
