Old Garden Tool Shed Before Demolition and Construction of Maintenance Garage

Old Garden Tool Shed Before Demolition and Construction of Maintenance Garage

This old “house” is on its way down–first, via gravity; soon, via crowbar; finally, via dozer. Making way for something a bit more useful…

This is a 1970s home built by the Whitfords, since the old farm house on the property burned down before it changed hands perhaps in the early 70s or before. The shed roof on the right side (as viewed from the gravel lot) may even have been a chicken coop prior to the old farm house being burned down. We plan to take it down “gently” to salvage rafters, which are rough cut, perhaps salvage some 1x paneling from the walls, but the floor system and joists are not far off the ground and are already rotting and giving way in places, so we may demolish and burn once we get down the the floor system. We also plan on sending the metal to the scrap yard for re-use.

The maintenance garage/tool barn/wood shop/picnic shelter will support the service with the local community aspect of our mission. Construction is planned for 2020 on the site of the old garden tool shed.
