We decided that the best way to bring the garage down was to invite all our friends over for a De-Construction Party. Everybody was to bring gloves and any sledgehammers, crowbars, etc. that they had.
A few friends were able to make it, and we set them to bashing the stucco off the exterior and removing the roof.
Once the roof was off, and the stucco & drywall had been removed, it was time to bring the walls down!
We cleaned that mess up and put temporary siding on the house to keep the weather out.
Then it was my task to jackhammer out the old foundation and driveway and prepare for the new foundation.
