The demolition of the existing house at our new project has begun. The process will take about three days total. A huge Cat first knocks a great hole in a side wall and then begins pulling all the outer walls to the inside. The massive machine drives over and over the materials grinding them into small pieces while another man sprays the piles down to control the dust. 18 wheeler dump trucks are then loaded to take away to debris to a landfill 30 miles away. The process of tearing down the house is fast and quite simple. The removal of the slab foundation and the driveways is much more time consuming. The pool will also be removed.
