So You Didn’t Want the Building to Roll Over Like a Dog?

This video of a building demolition shows a big oops. Watching it makes me feel better about my bad days.

We are currently renovating a building originally built in 1752, then expanded in 1868. We had some beautiful 1868 sandstone stairs in the front that we needed to just slightly reposition. I got the call yesterday that the one stair tread broke in half, which disappointed us all.  Later they found a piece of sandstone in back that was the perfect size to use as a replacement tread. Now that’s clean living.
