« Part 3: Bashing out the walls Part 4 of House Demolition series no next part

Hello All,

It’s tee-shirt weather again. So I can resume my house demolition project. I gave my neighbor the columns and railings off the front porch. He came for them and left the awning propped up with boards. So i took my sledge hammer and had a little fun.

Just like being a kid again, fun – fun – fun.

I’ve been working on tearing down an old 100 year old house. I love the old 2×4’s. I’m trying to salvage as much as I can. I made a nice “antique” shelf with one of the 1×10 pine siding boards. It turned out nice. Be careful and enjoy.

Nice of your neighbor to call and check on you!

And it’s smart to be “skittish” when doing a job like that. Gotta be ready for when it finally lets go, to make sure it isn’t coming TOWARDS you when it does.
