What is the best way to dispose of an old house? The fire department will not burn the house down for us. The house is very old, in bad shape, and needs to be disposed of. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
Try CraigsList. I had some HUGE boulders that we wanted gone. I was being quoted $200 to remove the things. I put an ad on craigslist for "Bolders, $5 each" and people paid ME to remove the stones. Try the listing it in the "Barter" section and allowing whoever tears it down to keep whatever they can take off of the house.
Very good idea. We did that with our old house and the men were more than happy to tear it down and take all away. Didn't cost us one cent and they got a lot of usable wood, cabinets and plumbing fixtures. Post an ad in your paper for someone to tear down the house they can have the entire thing, windows, frames, doors, etc. to have everything gone.
Yes, first sell what scrap you can. Then, there are companies that will take away the rest for a fee (demolition). Obviously, the more you get rid of the lower their fee will be. You'll need a demolition permit and make sure they spray water on it as they are bulldozing it so keeps the dust down.
