Wrecking ball festivities

Well, they used an excavator, not a wrecking ball, but it was still cool to see it go down. Check out some of the pictures of the demolition:

Looks like they were able to salvage some of the exterior brick, although we don't know into whose hands it will go.

Looks like at least one toilet didn't make it onto the salvage truck.

I wish we’d been in a position to do this when our boys were little. They’d have been riveted by this spectacle.

Large industrial trucks and equipment doing business in a residential neighborhood draw people like a magnet out of their homes to watch the show. It was no different on Monday when the house on our lot was demolished, allowing John to meet a few of our future neighbors. Hearing him talk about that made me even more anxious to wrap things up here and start the next chapter there.

Next on the list is to review the bids submitted by the moving companies and pick one.

  2. Very true. I stand corrected.
