I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to share this “journey to demolition,” a story that began next door in 2009 via Florida’s Eminent Domain Process. Although the landscape trees and shrubs were removed in May 2010, the house remained as-is for almost another year.
Alas, in March ’11, a John Deere Excavator and dump trunk rolled up, heralding the beginning of the end. I started taking pictures, shown here in slideshow format:
I was sad to see this little house go! It was only built in 1984, but the local population has exploded since then, and the road DOES need widening. Still, I wonder about the original builder passing by, or perhaps a previous owner…will they do a double-take…or care..or notice not at all? I tend to dwell on things like this.
Should the day arrive that finds me moving from smallhouse, I’ll print a few of these photos and bury them in a time-capsule where the house once stood. People lived on that lot for 27 years….I refuse to believe it didn’t matter…
Until next time…..
