A local had Jim and I remove a large baby barn from their back yard. They just wanted it gone, contents and all. Sure. No problem. Here is what we were working with.
First up, we had to take everything out of it. Lots of old paint cans and recyclables. With the shed empty we got to work with our drills and hammers. LOL. Not likely. Here is how it went down…
We used an old chain on the power saw, one that was sure to be ruined after cutting through nails etc. After a lot of muscle power from Jim swinging the maul, the front fell out, then Jim did the same on the back wall. Next up was cutting through the supports.
At this point we tried to push it over but no luck so Jim had to keep cutting the supports.
Meanwhile I was filling up our small trailer for our first trip to the waste facility which is 30 minutes away.
Once the supports were cut, we were left with this.
Jim climbed onto the roof and cut it into 8 pieces so we could pile a few on the trailer with the first load. When we got back, we put the remaining pieces onto the trailer as well as the floor.
With the trailer filling up again we were ready for our second trip.
At the waste facility they weigh the load and the two combined weigh one ton. Crazy right? Here is the site when we finished.
And with that, another thing is crossed off our to-do list. There is something very satisfying about drawing a line through something on the list.
We started milling the pine logs and they are really nice so far. Will show you this week.
