walked by this evening, and the dumpster is nice and close to the house. It may be possible to shovel the stuff right out of the upstairs window! (maybe a little shoot needed, but not much)

About 1/3 done I think. And with that, I think the messiest part. The "open" front rooms of the house are pretty much clean upstairs. Kim and Hailing did most of the hard work. The dumpster is close enough to the house where you can hit it from the upstairs windows. I did build a little ramp/shoot to keep the spillage in check.

Who is up for next Saturday, 9am? Bring a shuffle, a bucket and if possibly safety glasses and a dust mask. It is pretty dirty up there.But a lot of what we will have to do next is just cleaning up loose stuff and things like insulation. Not that much actual "dirt".


Now I know what pair of unlabeled keys is the right one ;-)

For anybody interested: Saturday 10am! Lets see if we can finish it. (10 am to allow for time after the first Friday, and it shouldn't be too hot anyway...)

Pretty much finished. Will post pictures later (forgot to take them, got into a fight with a local over dumping trash out of his car and forgot about taking pictures). The dumpster is pretty much full. There is still a bit of cleanup (downstairs some loose drywall on the floor, and a few more buckets upstairs of charred wood in the front.
