Farmhouse Construction Week 1: Deconstruction

This fall construction to build MAP's new farmhouse commenced with deconstruction of the little pink house. In the month leading up to knocking it down all the salvageable materials were removed. 

Tearing the old house down happened one rainy morning in October. It took a backhoe a few hours to rip the building apart. 

Debris was cleared away the next day leaving such a small looking vacant lot. 

The projects next steps include cleaning up the farm landscape and installing a new fence. A major piece of this included removing the giant maple tree in the background of the photo above. You can see how the trunk of this beautiful, but giant, tree is significantly leaning to the left. If it fell down it would cause major damage to MAP's property, as well as the neighbors houses.
