Once upon a time there was a house.

I have not reported much about the house build lately. That is because there have not been much action at site until last week. In previous bloggs have I mentioned that there is a old existing house on the loot where we are planing to build. This house need to be demolished before we can start building the new one.

Our first plan was that the contractor for the groundwork would demolish the house and transport it away. But we had heard from people that the Fire department can use old houses for exercise. So we contacted the local Fire department and they though it was a good idea. Apparently was there very few houses that they could use for exercise now days. I understand why it is hard to use a more modern house for exercise because all the electrical wires, insulation and roof tiles needs to be removed also if there are any other environmental hazardous material needs to be removed. Our house was built in the beginning of 2000th  century and had only one room with insulation. It took us roughly 3days to remove every environmental hazardous material with some help from friends. After that did we give the firemen access to the house.

So the first of may did they do the practice and burn down the house in the end. There where 20 firemen and 4 fire trucks and one helicopter. I am trying to get pictures of this event from the department it might come later. So with no further a due, here is some before and after pictures.
Before
After

Before the fire did we do some other work. The huge pear tree in front of the house need to be taken down. So I used my chainsaw master dad for help. The trunk was huge and heavy but we had some luck because the tree was leaning away from the house.

I have some more pictures of the burned building that I tough you would be interested in.
