Ok We got this house on our farm that we want to tear down. We have gutted the inside down to the framing and it sits on piers. How would yall pull it down? Ill have a 350 dumptruck, my truck, dads 6.7, a 43 hp john deere, and track skid steer available to use. I have a couple ideas on how to pull it down but i want yalls input. My ideas are:
1)pull the brick piers out from under it
2)wrap chains around the main beams going from pier to pier and then pull 2 sides at a time
3)use tow straps chains and go all the way around about middle of the wall height
4)hook to on side at the joints of the walls and trusses
I dont think well have a problem because a lot of the wood is rotten but we want to save some of the roof rafters. What do yall think will be the safest way and most fun? Ill get a video when were doing it and post up.
