a whole lotta excitement!!

You think you've had a bad day ! How would you like to be the guy in this machine ?!

They have been demolishing the house across the street from us today. It was quite something to see them rip away at it and then to see the last part holding it all together go and the entire roof and sides come crashing down all at once! Kind of sad to see someone tear down a perfectly good house..... a house that probably took a crew of skilled homebuilders a good part of a year to build and that can be demolished in a matter of 3 hours.

The gas station across the street owns this house and lot. It will be interesting to see what they plan to do with the space now. Quite busy around here!!

It always breaks my heart to see a building come down like that. I hope that one day more houses can be taken apart piece by piece and reused.
