I have been preoccupied and off the site for a few weeks.
I have been tearing down the house we lost in the flood in Aug. 2010.
I am in the final clean up phase now and should be done this weekend.
Overall it went pretty well with only a couple mishaps.
My 80 yr old father tipped over his Bobcat 610, when he backed over a culvert.
No injuries, other than his hurt pride. A Friend had a Cat 226 Skidsteer on site and set it back on it's wheels. No Damage and we have been running the 610 every day since.
And my Brother Jerry, got a cut that took 6 stitches in his arm , while stacking I beams.
I salvaged a lot of lumber and the frame Beams. and have nearly enough concrete blocks to build a root cellar next year.
I had a good crew that included my Father, Myself, 3 brothers, Grandson and a couple good friends.
As much as it was a HATED job, it was fun to work with my dad and brothers again!
Boy do we work slower than we did 40 yrs ago?
And it is a relief to have it out of the way.
