A day later the lot was cleared, original foundation was demolished and there was no trace of anything remaining. Construction of the new house begins in about a month so.

I have not seen the building plans, but I hope the new place "fits" the neighborhood.

I was actually surprised that they took it ALL down - there is a curious quirk in building laws and sales taxes on building materials around here. Renovations are tax- exempt, but new construction is fully taxed. If you leave ONE original wall, it is considered to be renovation. I've seen quite a few "renovated" older homes. Esp when a year later another reno occurs, replacing that one original wall and expanding the house out THAT side, too.
The one wall deal is for building permit costs. They charge more for new construction over renovations. I told them I was leaving my footings and slab but she didn't buy into that one.

I am going to get the footings and slab ripped out while I'm at it. May as well go everything new. I mean, what the hey? I paid full permit price.

Bins coming tomorrow...
You got half of your wish, it was slow and painful...

I pulled a demo trailer for 1 summer and watched a number of buildings get demolished. Around here, they need a fire hose spraying on it while it comes down to contain the dust.

1971BB427 Changed out spark plugs on the SBC in my Burb today, and had a fun time with #5 cylinder! All went well up to that point, and then I discovered not a single deep well socket would fit past the header on that plug! Had to use an old offset box wrench and remove it 1/8th turn at a time! Used the rubber hose trick to get the new plug started in, and then same routine to tighten it! Hope I don't have to do that one again for a very long time!
