I'll try and recap from the start so maybe this thread won't be confusing.
This is how the house looked when we bought it in 2011.....

a little over two years ago I started harvesting trees for the lumber I would be using for T&G flooring all the trim for house......

I cut and hauled about twenty loads of logs, pine, sycamore, beech, red oak, white oak and poplar to a sawmill just 3 miles down the road, he did a good job and price was very fair,
I hauled all the lumber back to my pole barn to air dry,
I sprayed each board with Tim-Bor before stacking, this air dried for almost two years.....

with all the lumber in th barn air drying, I built the solar kiln, I can get 16' lumber in it, being able to dry 16' lumber was nice for long boards I plan to make molding with.....
I posted a thread on the kiln build so I'll only show a few pic's here......

Now the fun part begins DEMO!!!!!!
The previous owner built the old house in sections, one side was the living room and kitchen, then he doubled this by adding and addition with two bedrooms and a bath beside it, he poured a large carport in front of it (the one I enclosed) he then ran a large steel beam on each side the entire length and supported it with steel columns, he added trusses and a metal roof, this made the roof like a free standing pavilion type roof over the entire house, I saw no reason to demo a perfectly good roof so my wife designed a new house to fit under it utilizing the existing roof. I came up with a plan on how to demo the old house out from under it.

Thank you, we're looking forward to project being completed.

i like the photos, and the covered deck!

i see you use Cuddeback cameras.
i use the Cuddeback CuddeLink, the Black Flash type. CUD-01144
i found that the Long Range IR would flash a single red LED when the battery's where getting low. thus giving way its location.

one thing i dislike about the CuddeLink is it uses 12 AA batteries for each camera.
Costco Kirkland AA 72 pack = $20 = $3.34 per camera.
batteries last 60 days

yes sir, it's just what I grabbed off the shelf, I prefer the long range IR and use the optional battery pack that takes 6 D cell, I've used it two years so far onthe same batteries.
