« Tomorrow! | Main | House From Hole »

Tuesday, August 10, 2010


Today we took down the house. The equipment showed up on Monday to pull out the stumps, and it was waiting for the Big Event Tuesday morning.

So, where do you start demolishing a house? How about the front door?

One chomp and the door is gone! This is powerful stuff.

Then, you keep chomping until you cut the house in half.

And eventually, the roof caves in.

The big guy keeps eating away at the center of the house while the little guy takes down the garage, on the left

 The garage is gone, and the South side of the house is next.


When they meet up, there isn't much left standing but the French doors and some trim.


Two hours later the house has been turned into a pile of rubble.


Pack it into the biggest truck ever.


Then drive it off to Maine where they will grind it up into "Hog Food" to be burned in a power plant.


Goodbye, House From Hell (HFH). It's enough to bring you to tears.... not because the house is gone, but because the lot looks so gorgeous with the house gone.

Stay tuned. I will try to post videos later.

Off to Maine? I know people up there I think would have liked those French door. I will enjoy the heat that HFH will generate this winter!

Loved the French Doors too! It\'s now a beautiful plot waiting for all new adventures to happen. Have fun looking toward those great new times!
