Terry would rather throw bricks down from a high place and bitld would rather not lower a 5 gallon bucket down from a height. I think tossing them onto the tarp and then loading them into a wheelbarrow and taking them into the woods will be enough fun for me in any two hour stretch. The house side of the bricks is pretty much closed in, so we could take down the outside without opening the house until the very end.
G is having some difficulty breathing with exertion (heavy lifting) so we may not be able to do this ourselves. His lung problems will define what we can and can't do ourselves. I also don't want him breathing in brick dust. It's just that doing myself is essentially FREE and having people come in is about $8000. Yes, you read that right. Free versus $8000. And best of all, no one actually wants to do the work, even for $8000. I think the last guy mentioned four guys at 8 hours and $80 an hour.
