[Progress.001] House finally demolished on 26/5

After last Wednesday (23/5) asbestos, windows, door, linens, cupboards,...etc timber stuff removed, we waited for 2 days without any progress with the demolition...

After a few phone calls with Dhilas, Fred finally squeezed our job into his busy schedule. We were a bit surprise to see his big machines delivered outside the house late Friday night. Early Saturday morning 7:30 and it all started... After whole day's hard work, the whole house was gone, well almost, still got some more bricks, rubbish, and most importantly some trees and 20+ tree stumps all over the back yard to be removed.

According to Fred, just need another full day's work on Monday (28/5) to get ride of everything.

I have attached a few photos, to record what it looked like before and after the demolition...

Why did you demolish the house?

It did not look condemned although only from a distance.

Do you want to exchange links with my
Movie Special blog?
