Asbestos Removal

The asbestos removal has started on the old house, so I thought I'd share a few pictures.

Tuesday, lining the walls to remove the ceiling, prep work.

Taken through a window and plastic on the inside - the workers. Note the ceiling behind the technician is already out of the house.

More wallboard removed - taken through the plastic lining. We couldn't go inside.

Air testing equipment, monitoring the asbestos in the air. There is also a shower set up for the workers to wash off before emerging from the enclosures.

Job Manager and state inspector, who checks before and after removal.

Air vented to the outside, wonder if the asbestos is being blown out into the neighborhood?

By Friday night all the asbestos and the exposed sheetrock, wood, etc., will be removed exposing almost all the interior walls and ceilings. 

Yesterday I contacted the gentleman who owns the property next to the house. He is interested in giving us a bid on the property. So next week, he will put together an offer to the church for the entire property. The Church Council meets on the 19th, so we hope to be able to provide them with this information for their decision on whether to proceed with our hope for a sober living facility, or whether to sell the property to take other action. 

Still moving along at a snail's pace. Thanks for all your good wishes.
