    You can get away with all sorts of mad and dangerous ideas in America it seems. That was never going to work from just looking at the roof construction. No triangulation between rafters snd wall plates. Funniest thing I've seen for a long time. Thanks Andrew.

    The dogs are the best part about the videos. This does not seem to be a well thought out demolition. Too muddy. They need Johnny Jett from Barn Wood Builders to run the fork lift. Looks like the brick wall one part of the house seemed to sway....most likely loosened mortar joints.

    Well, the "lifting the roof off" didn't go a planned but the goal was achieved anyway. That old roof was just too heavy. It could not support its own weight. To lift it off in one piece would have required a lot of additional work to reinforce it. It was worth a try and there was noting to lose. Good job!

    I think taking human sized bits would have been much easier.Than trying to lift off a 20x45 piece. Or from the inside construt a spreader frame fastened to the old roof to stop deflection.. Don,t watch "barnwood builders" if you have to save the lower structure.
