unfortunately it passes right over me.. cough cough
Around me, a torn down house is considered hazardous waste. You'd pay an enormous fine if you decided to burn it. Between lead paint and asbestos that are in pretty much any older house, I wouldn't want to be downwind of you when it burned.
...and I'm talking rural Vermont. A friend of mine lost his house in the hurricane Irene flooding last fall. He wasn't allowed to burn it. It got carted off in a bunch of dumpsters last month.
I'll keep you in mind. I'm thinking of being the General contractor in this whole thing. I have an electrician and a Carpet installer. I think we may have found a builder that allows for subcontracting like this.
I'll set ya up with a room and tons of food and beer. and I'd pay ya.
Now, you can't burn a house that is standing. That I know for sure. You have to smash it down first.
That is a really nice property. Is seems as the photos were taken at the right time of the year, green grass etc.
When is the house-warming party?
we went inside for a quick walkthrough before settlement. We found a bunch of jewlery (probably junk), several old Hess Trucks, Old photos, trinkets. Also found a Nazi Pin.
The basement is stacked full of junk. Figure I'll get a burn pile going for stuff I can burn and a pile for unburnables and a pile for ebay items.
There was a house built on that lot back in the 1840s and at one point it was removed or burned. the house was later built in 1960.
While in the basement I noticed 1/2 the foundation was in stone and the other half was in block. one of my hobbies is metal detecting (relecs) so once I clean out the basement I'll take a few swings with the metal detector and see what turns up.
I will log everything I can .

I picked up some RAID bug foggers.
I stopped by on Saturday and grabbed the two cameras that I mentioned.
not worth a mint or anything but they are complete.
the one was never sold in the US. I'm thinking there is gonna be some German stuff in this house.
I also attempted to breach the attic. there appears to be a partial floor that covers where the stairs would go up to it. but right above the door to the attic is a large opening. I guess I need a step ladder.
I was freaked out though. I kept thinking of the GRUDGE with that dude in the attic. F that.
The second pic below it me sticking my phone in the attic access. I didn't have the balls to go up and get a better pic. hahaha. such a wuss.
The wife has offered to go over with me and a couple WM bagsters to start cleaning out the crap. Blaaa. I'm gonna have to go in the basement I bet. Barf.
I'll post up pics
because my wife works for WM.
They don't like dumpsters to be on site for very long especially at our cost so I want to plan for the knock down to have two dumpsters there.
Pics are uploading barf.
Well, we loaded up the kids, a 6pack of beer and some juice boxes. Oh a sledge hammer, framing hammer and a 3 food bar.
I breached the basement to find thousands of jars of food. Pretty gross especially when the entire shelf broke and about twenty of them broke. haha. it stunk pretty badly.
jars jars and more jars.
I found another camera. I also found HUGE log beams on the one interior wall. It was once a log cabin from the 1800s
So much junk in the basement.
We filled one Bagster last night. I plan to spend the day over there tomorrow burning stuff and going through more.
also found there is not insulation in the walls.
dang. seems like a lot of work for porn. dig out the slide projector. hold each slide up to the light to see which ones you like.. load the real. Dim the lights (romantic) learn how to use the flicker with your "off" hand.
We got a whole day of burning done. I had a small fire going today and the township guy pulls up. Not allowed to burn. he was really cool about it though. You could tell he thinks it's a stupid law.
Anyways. I got to go tomorrow and get a building permit/demo. I really want to attack the rest of the house but I need to do it by the books.
There is no insulation in any of the walls, floors or ceiling. cool
The alluminum comes right off. very easy.
