I tore down my garage. Yes, I, as in me, alone.

Pics later. It's not done yet. Gonna need someone to haul away the roof and remove the slab. The rest is in a dumpster but the roof has defeated me. The timbers are in surprisingly good condition compared to the rest and tearing off shingles is horrible, plus the dumpster is full.

Everyone so far has basically told me that the garage represented a health and safety hazard such that the government would not finance a mortgage on the property, which between FHA and VA loans would probably represent 75% of our potential buyers. Everyone also told me to call someone in to knock it over but I needed demolition therapy in the worst possible way.

The potential buyers point is moot since we're probably going to lease the place, but potential renters would not want that wreck either.
