Residence remodel is ON!
At the end of last year we announced that in 2017, once the construction permitting process is cleared, that the residence will be getting some much-needed face lifting. The residence was built a while back and needs some updating on electric, insulation, ducting, some structural shoring up and other punch-list items. We are pleased to announce that we've received clearance to begin the process of demolition.
To that end we need a few hale and hearty souls to help with phase one which is the removal of the chimney and fireplaces. Bob is general contracting on this part and says that he'd like to schedule the demolition for the weekend of Jan 28-29, 9am-4pm. Note that this is weather dependent.
If you can come that weekend, please tell Bob at by Jan 22nd. Then he can determine if that weekend will work or not. If you are able and willing to do this type of work but that weekend does not work please let Bob know when you might be available.
Here is what is needed to safely and efficiently complete the job:
1. People power:
(A) Eight to ten strong people needed to wield sledges and a demolition hammer to take down the chimney and fireplaces.
(B) Two skilled or semi-skilled carpenters needed to frame in holes in roof, walls, and ceiling. (If you are willing to do the demolition work as well then the number indicated above can be reduced)
(C) Three or more that can clean and stack the bricks as they come down
2. Equipment needed:
If you can bring or lend, please let us know
Several sturdy wheelbarrows, at least 2 sledge hammers, cold chisels, and an automated chipping hammer. Sturdy hard hats are also recommended. Everyone must bring work gloves. Demolition crew also must bring sturdy boots and eye protection.
3. Save the bricks:
It is our intention to save some of the bricks as the demolition takes place, so it would be nice for a few people available to carry and stack the bricks after they are removed from the house.
Hot lunch and chai for everyone. Chanting at 4:30. Anyone who needs a place to stay, contact Yasas at
Parents -- no children please unless they are supervised and kept away from the demolition site at all times.
