Removing a home from a lot


haha. all those jars were nicely placed on a huge shelf...... which collapsed.

We were daring each other to try the jarred goodies.



I'll do what I can to avoid any of the lead paints and asbestos.

The walls in the exposed top half were made from paneling, 2x4s , no insulation, 1/8" sheathing and aluminum siding. It just falls apart.

Now the ohter side with the large logs may take some work.

If you plan on rebuilding in the same spot, you may not want to teardown the old house yet. The current citing of the house is grandfathered, so most ZB or zoning laws look favorably on replacing an existing structure. If you teardown the house you will lose your grandfathered status. If you don't plan on rebuilding in the same spot, go ahead and tear it down.

The in thing around hear is to buy an old 3 season lake front cottage, build a 4000+ sq ft McMansion around it, then teardown the cottage which is now inside the new house.

Yes, they are doing that with some of the ranch homes in our area. weird to see that happen.

The existing home is too close to the road. The lot is 2 acres so there is a lot of room for a home.



The guy who I talked to about a permit mentioned that I should get a Septic/sandmound plan finished and on his desk because its a good time of year to get that work done and that it is normally a hold up in the build process. WHo would I have do a plan?

The septic installer should be able to handle all the paper work needed. He should know exactly what is required.

I sure hope you plan to get the roof off first before tearing into any more walls.

That's a shame..... Some of those old mason jars are worth a few bucks. The hand hewn logs might have a market too.

My point is... before you continue removing everything thatís holding the house together you should thinking about getting the weight off the top first.

Sure, clean out the garbage but do you have a plan on how to deconstruct this place safely?

$4,800 is cheap,do you know how much dumping fees are at a C&D landfill ?
When wrecking a building you need to munch up the wood into small pieces with an excavator.
As it stands doing it yourself you will have about 3 grand in roll off fees, if someone were to do it for you it would be done in a couple of hours.

It seems there is no need to dump the wood. A good bonfire appears to be taking care of that part of the debris.

Unfortunately the township put an end to that. No burning unless in farmland.... Period. He was nice about it but it still sucks

The dump is free where I'm at, if I haul.

In New England where I am, many towns fire departments will burn the house for you as a training exercise. The disposal is up to you.

Try to find a company that utilizes the old wooden planks to make wood flooring. There is a company here that travels many miles just to get these.
