MARTINSR Didn't get anything done but a great meal out with my son. This is a cute little town near us and I parked Marge in the special high performance car parking lot.

I really need to get that up on my home darn it. But really, I have something about old houses, I have seen so many destroyed in his town so that condos or a hundreds houses can be stuffed onto the property (or 500 on the farm) I can't stand seeing one torn down. It's such a waste to me, it tears my heart out.

There are not thousands of houses within this photo, it's sickening. As far as you can see and further, to the right it was all fields, to the left, all fields, all the way to the bay, farms. It's all covered in houses now. so sad.

I agree but in my case, the house is truly a piece of junk.
It's also out of place. I live in a heritage zone and my new house will blend into the neighborhood nicely.

I wouldn't want to see any of the older houses in my hood destroyed. They really look nice.

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.

What size was on it before?
