...and the wall came tumbling down...

In preparation for the building of a 3-story parking garage behind our home, the car dealership started to remove our back wall today. They will be replacing it with a 10 foot cement block wall with a greenspace beyond to help mask the building (a little).

Here is a short video of the demolition process. The workers and backhoe operator were very careful to not damage the trees or the vines that I will be replacing on the new wall. We will have to live with the temporary net fencing for a few weeks, but, so far, things are running smoothly. The next step is to remove the existing footings, re-grade the surrounding area, set forms and pour the new footings. Then they can start building the new wall.
