Made my son laugh. Kudos to you, higtron. Love the redneck ingunuity. If a truck won’t pull it down you should have bought a 4 wheel drive. If a 4 wheel drive won’t pull it down you need a tractor. If that won’t work you have 2 options: that somewhat insane guy you know with a D6 or beer. Or beer for the guy with the dozer…that works.

Slick! There are few things more satisfying than demolition.

When it hit the ground, the roof looked pretty sturdy? You sure you couldn’t have restored that thing to use?

Awesome demolition, My garage went down the same as yours. I had my son in law take care of it. I replace it with a 30’ X 33’ garage with a 10/12 pitch so there is plenty of room upstairs. Good luck on your replacement garage. I included a bathroom in mine. It is the most important space in the garage.
