Tricky shed demolition part 2

On our second day, my wife and I spent the morning stripping out the first shed and emptying the second shed. In the picture below, you will see the back wall…rotten…and it slopes to the left. That actually drops about 2 feet. The bottom sill plate of the wall is completely gone so the only thing holding up the wall is the fact its attached to the roof.

This picture shows how the roof of that shed was insulated, basically one inch thick polybead styrofoam sheets. At this point its after lunch on Thursday. The dumpster is full so that will be picked up and brought back some time tomorrow morning. We can only get the cut off saw on Friday late afternoon, so we’ll shut down for the day and return on Saturday to get that roof off.

Recycling is a good thing…After speaking with Jeff at Eastern Sanitation Limited, he gave me the name of a company in Pictou County, Bill Stewart’s Scrap Metal and Bottle Exchange 902-783-2144. I spoke with one of the dirvers named Rob, who told me if we can take the metal down and pile it, they’ll drive up, pick it up and pay us right there. Nice! They pay $100 per ton which ironically is the cost it would take to dump the metal at the landfill. They take any metal, scrap vehicles etc.

These next two pictures show the extent of the rot.

That’s it for the today. Saturday we get at the roof off the shed.
