We have a shed on our property that blew over in the eind. Not all the way but at an angle. What would be the best way to take it down! Hoping to preserve what’s in it and some material to re build. Roof still on it.

    start with the area furthest off the ground if you can safely reach it; board by board; remove all nails; stack on bricks/blocks to keep from warping; remove larger support beams when all the siding you can reach has been safely removed. NEVER enter the shed -- under the roof or walls until you are certain that it cannot collapse. Wear safety goggles, gloves and if possible 'work boots' with reinforced toes and solid soles .. .don't need to step on any nails!

    Hi Becky, I would start with taking apart the roof so that it does not fall on top of everything, then work your way down.
