  3. Roofing/Siding

    Someone offered to give me the block of marble they are getting rid of from a front step, but it's too big to manage alone! Even with 3 or 4 people, it's next to impossible. It's measurements are 44" x 24" x 7", and it weighs in around 720 pounds. And Ideas on how to possibly breaking/cutting to...
