Pictures will be needed----

You will want to build stacked 'cribbing' to support the slab while you cut/break it into manageable sized chunks---

You have some serious weight 3 feet off the ground--enough to damage the house or --you!---

Post pictures if you can--otherwise--a better description would help--Mike---

Agreed. The construction sounds unique and significant enough to require photos to figure out how to take it down.
