Mind you, it was a bit more spectacular than I'd planned...


I'd made it a goal back in June to finish tearing down the old shed so I could complete getting the new one sided. The new shed was built right up against the side of the old shed, so it had to come down so I could actually finish putting up the siding. I couldn't quite get that far last year so it sat, but I determined that this was easy enough to get done so -- it got added to the list.

I've been working on it off and on since June 1st, but hit it heavy this weekend (alternating between it and the road gravel work). Yesterday I carried up all of the scrap wood I'd salvaged so far so I could make room to continue working. This was not particularly fun -- turns out it's a heck of a lot easier to carry 4x8 hunks of plywood downhill than it is uphill. But I got that all done and stashed into the garage (or the burn pile) and hit it again this afternoon.

I'd removed the door frame and some of the surrounding plywood, then took look at what was left. I figured that there was probably just one 2x4 stud holding up the roof, and if I knocked it out then the roof should collapse towards the new Shed (I'd been steadily knocking out all of those supports) and then I could begin dismantling the roof itself.

So I bashed out the 2x4 with my sledge. Of course it fell outside since I smacked it from the inside, so I hopped down to retrieve it and toss it into the pile...

...And there was snapping and cracking and lo and behold the old Shed fell down! Not a little, the whole thing... remaining walls blew out, roof hit the floor -- that sucker was down.

Kind of glad I wasn't standing there, though I think I could have hopped out of the way. Probably.

So the shed's down...
