and so is my back. What a lot of work, but it’s done. Here’s the pictures:
Once the siding was off, it was easy to knock the walls over. The harder part was going through removing nails and stacking the wood out of the way. Most of the wood was 8 foot lengths, but there was some smaller and a few 10 foot sticks.
Just to show how many nails there were, look at that picture – two full one gallon milk containers of nails.
This is a picture of the tools I used to bring the shed down:
- The crow bar is a great tool for general prying things apart and pulling nails.
- The black flat bar is one of my favorite demo tools. It pries, pulls nails, scrapes and make a satisfying ringing sound when dropped.
- The hammer or as I like to call, a persuader as it persuades things to move to new places.
- Screw driver for the few screws I found
- The blue handled channel locks are good for removing stubborn screws and helps with more difficult nail removal.
- The vice grips are for really, really stubborn screws and broken nails.
- Gloves – I actually wore out one pair of gloves on this job.
- Magnet on a string for when nails roll into awkward places.
- Tea cup for morning break.
- Water bottle – have to stay hydrated.
and finally, some of the personal protect stuff – safety glasses, gloves and a really big hat. The sun at this altitude can be intense.
Tomorrow the new shed arrives and then I can start on building new things. Until then, if you need me, I’ll be collapsed in a corner.
