19July2014_1_Helping-Levco_Start-Removal-GarageIt was really exciting a couple of days ago when Joe Levitch of Levco Builders, the ones who remodelled our kitchen and more recently our bathroom, put out the word that he needed help in the demolition of a garage. (Not our garage!) Here we are starting the project. Everything that could be, would be salvaged. Wood, windows etc. Joe bought a new tool that I used today that would remove the nails from wood. A great little tool that uses compressed air. Here are some more photos. Enjoy. Left-Click any of the to see enlarged. Cheers!

Sofit is going.

Soffit is going.

That’s when I had to leave. About 4 hours up to here. Glad I could be there and help in my limited way. Thanks, Joe. Enjoy the Rye Bread. Then on 23 July, Joe sent me these photos of the completed project. Thanks, Joe.

The frame is all that's pretty much left.
