Coming Down, Part III

Coming downOn February 26th, a truck pulled up to the neighborhood’s latest urban renewal project and unloaded a large excavator.  It won’t be soon now until the current house is gone.

The previous owners did extensive remodeling of the house when they moved in about 18 months ago.   New windows, siding, appliances, cabinets, etc. were installed. 

Items installed during the remodeling that have value through reuse or recycling are being removed prior to the demolition.  

The demolition is scheduled to begin on Monday, February 28th.  Stay tuned for more on this latest suburban renewal project.


Coming Down, Part II

house110201A few days ago, a couple of guys showed up and started tearing the siding off of the neighborhood’s latest suburban renewal project.  It won’t be long now until this old house will be a fond memory. I guess that’s the way it goes in our throw-away society.

The reason they are removing the siding prior tearing the house down is for Asbestos Abatement.  The original siding on the house contained asbestos.  They had to remove the current siding to get at the original asbestos shingles, which they then removed, packaged up and hauled away to a disposal facility.
