Demolishing a Garden Shed

Sandra Black
by Sandra Black
When we moved into this house 4 years ago there was a good sized wooden garden shed and we definitely made good use of it.
Unfortunately we later discovered that the roof was getting badly damaged by the neighbours trees which overhung into our garden and quite a few branches were rubbing across the roof of the shed every time the wind blew hard - we live on the top of a hill in Northern Ireland so the wind blew hard regularly.
So unfortunately the shed roof started leaking and this also caused more damage inside - the shed had to go!
We treated this a a fun job but really it took a lot of effort by my husband and son.
The chainsaw had to come into action, and the safety gear too.
The front was down, the first side was down and now it was the other side.
Then it was time to tackle the back .
They lifted up the floor in two halves.
The floor was badly damaged from water getting through the damaged roof.
