After making this web site and painting the house I couldn't bring myself to smash it into pieces - the way of a typical demolition. So I assembled a team and came up with a plan to demolish the house - gently - hoping to save as much of the material as possible. This is not the fastest, easiest or cheapest way to demolish a house - but I felt it was the right thing to do. With the help of 249 people, I raised over $30,000 on Kickstarter to support the project. I hired a professional demolition contractor based in the community to lead the heavy lifting. And then hired 7 of my neighbors to help me process, trim, de-nail, organize and store all of the material from the house. All told it took us 7 weeks to complete the gentle demolition.
