A few strong, experienced members are needed to retrieve some specific lumber pieces from a house in E Vancouver that is due to be demolished shortly. Specifically, we want to save some cedar steps and fir 2 x 10 rafters/beams that form the carport roof. There might be some additional useful pieces, too
The plan is to store these pieces nearby, maybe until Spring, then to build some tent platforms at some of the Howe Sd campsites. The cedar will likely be used sooner for foot treads on a new log bridge just built at Tantalus Landing.
Any potential volunteer can pl email me
Work boots, protective clothing, gloves, hearing and eye protection needed. I’d suggest a hard hat too. A pickup truck would be helpful, if anyone has one.
We will approach the wrecking carefully and safely. We expect to be able to use some power tools such as recip saw, elec chainsaw, skilsaw. Volunteers might need their own hammers and crow/pry bar, but we have all sorts of demolition tools, so this is not really necessary.
We could wait until the backhoe crew has knocked the structure down and ask the contractor to retrieve and set aside these pieces for us (saving them the dumping fee, charged by weight) but they could be damaged and worthless by then.
The drywall and any asbestos have already been professionally removed.
