Demolition Day ONE

 022 Every year we try to make some improvements to the orchard.  A high priority on this years list was to do something about the underground building.  Due to poor drainage, the walls were collapsing in on themselves making this building unsafe.  023 You can really see the wall issues in the picture above. 026 The really unfortunate thing about having to demo this building is that it was a really neat piece of history for the orchard.  You can see that the peak of the building is barely out of the ground here.  Underneath it is a concrete room built into the side of the hill.  This is where the apples were stored before they had big coolers for them.  043 But, we did have to take it down so we could eliminate our worry that someone would get hurt in it.  050Our buddy John of JZ Enterprises came over to help with the initial demolition of the building. 

Below you can see a freeze frame progression of the building coming down.044 045 046  047048  027

Here is Jared and Capri checking out what’s left of the underground building.  Our initial plan was to create some sort of picnic area hear and still show of the underground building.  Unfortunately, once the building/roof was taken off this area the wall you see on the left collapsed and the interior walls of the underground building started to crack and buckle – again, not safe.


I’ll share with you Demolitions Day TWO soon so you can see what we finally decided had to happen.
