They didn't really say much. My wife was there when they were out. She said one of them said they never minded it there. the other said so much for our deer walking down across the grass. Blaaa. BS. that house was bringing the values of the other homes down. The deer will be back.

How much for the dumpster? You do realize you'll likely need more than one, right? Probably three if you fill carefully and don't go over their weight limits.

Since it was built before 1976 it WILL have lead paint in it. For adults you'd be fine just wearing a mask and washing it off. But you definitely don't want to have your boy exposed to it for any length of time. And old insulation and tiles may also have asbestos in them. Again, masks are critical here. Better to suffer the inconvenience of wearing them now rather than lung diseases later...

It might be a bit late now, but contact local salvage companies. They might be interested in the materials. We're using secondchance from baltimore to deconstruct ours. They get the materials for resale and we get a tax break.

We planned for four dumpsters.

The weight limits should be fine since the concrete is going into the foundation.

Sounds like someone who will find something negative to say about anything.

I'm a fan of wildlife but not a fan of deer. I was fine with them until i hit one with my car. I'm not fond of them now.

birds are cool

I'm fond of deer... venison is quite tasty. Otherwise they're just rats of the forest.

haha. I can deal with bologna but the rest is not my thing. I can go to the store and get a massive steak and grill it up nice and juicy with a dash of pepper, a slight worchestershire marinade, potatoes and beans or corn.

hungry now.

Always fun to watch a good demolition! If I were your neighbor I would bring out my lawn chair and a beer! Well, a couple of them to share with you! :-)

I wasn't there for it.

I stopped by about 2:30 yesterday and there wasn't any equipment there. SO I decided to take my recycling over and my wife sent me a text and said the house was down. darnit.

she got the pics. I have a couple vids I'll post up.

Kind of late now. The OP has already started the process, and pretty much it was gone at this point, when you posted.

Check online to see if there is anyone in your area who buys reclaimed lumber. The last I checked the old growth wood like in the hewn logs was going for around $9 a BF. I would sure set them aside and see if I could find a buyer for them, just keep the dry. Sometimes they will tear down for the lumber.

Well, looks like part I is done!

Here's a random question - they obviously disconnected the utilities a long time ago right?

Right.

3 dumpsters packed full. Each dumpster will hold legally 17tons . We have only C&D waste so I don't expect 17 tons.
