After a number of years looking for a new house we've to decide to pull down our old house and build new.
After two false starts with other builders (this cost us a bit of cash being two lots of pre-start fees but we learned a lot), we have finally signed a contract and are starting out new build with Breezeway House.
THe old house was cut in half and taken away to NSW and put back together on a property so it still lives on. The rest of the block was cleared by a recycling company so all up none of it went to landfill.
Plans are already in with council with a start on site scheduled for Jan/Feb.
The process (in pics) so far.....
|The original house.|
|Step one of the house removal was to strip trees from front.|
|Then cut the house in half (longways to fit on trailer).|
|Slide steel beams under the house so.....|
|.....it can be slid over onto the trailer.|
|1st night move - half the house is going.|
|2nd half in position on trailer ready to be hooked up|
|The midnight hook up.|
|Drive up the street missing power lines and trees.|
|Bye bye house!|
|House is gone, but garage and "concrete pier garden" still to be removed.|
|Vacant block - ready to start in the new year!|
