So our two/ three bedroom 1940's house was demolished by Bassetts Demolition Company. It only took 4 days for the house to be demolished and most of those 4 days had light to medium rain. Our neighbours are keeping a keen eye on the house build and were super impressed by Bassets.
Our No-name building company organised the demolition and we paid them a 25% premium to manage this for us. Dumb idea in hindsight. It is so easy to organise yourself. The demo company needs to complete a work plan and a few other pieces of documentation then it's easy peasy to complete a DA application right?
Before the house was demolised we had a pre-demolition sale as the house had only been renovated two years prior. We ended up raising about $2.5k from the sale of a poly kitchen, stained glass windows/ door, Built ins, European appliances etc. Not a bad little bonus.
To advertise the pre-demolition sale I produced a blog with heaps of photos and placed an advertisement on gumtree.com.au directing traffic from there to the blog. It was a huge success and I had heaps of enquiries and sold what I wanted t sell.
Anyway, here is a video of part of the demolition
Here are some pics
