Time to Redefine our Lives in Oregon

The past two weeks have been quiet…..too quiet.  Nothing was happening on the build site, no demolition, no excavation, no building, no movement on finances……..then…..Monday morning, Sept. 26th, as if out of nowhere, a HUGE beast showed up to the property, and EVERYTHING changed!!!

The mighty arm of Warren Ewing Demolition and Excavation!

 Let’s back up a bit………in fact, I’ll let the pictures tell the story.

  • We knew Warren was coming, so we made the first hole in the wall.

Still flying!!


The Demolition Begins!


Hank was watching everything!


LOOK OUT HOUSE!!!!!Too late!


Tony watching the demolition...wishing he could get in that rig and pull the house down himself!


Warren wrapped up a bunch of the debris in the carpet, and picked it up like you would a blanket.


Work here in Oregon doesn't wait just because the sun rises later this time of year. Early A.M. demolition!!


Our daughter, Roni, watching the house fall down. It was a foggy A.M. so the camera was focusing on the fog. Pretty cool!


It looked like those pictures you see when a tornado rips through a town!


Well...there goes an entire wall!!


There goes the mudroom!!And the little, old, house.....is gone!!


Up comes the flooring. You can see how the foundation was filled in with dirt by little critters, through the years..


Nothing but a gigantic hole in the ground now...you can see how much hillside Warren is having to excavate. That's our son, Will, working with Warren to check the elevation



The site is ready now to meet with the builders on Monday!! We are FINALLY on our way!!!

As you can see, it was an incredible week!!  The little, unhealthy, bug infested, smelly house is gone…..our future home is on its way. 
By the way, if  you ever need any demolition and/or excavation work done, run, don’t walk, pick up your phone and call Warren Ewing Demolition and Excavation!  He is incredibly reliable, professional, and does an awesome job!!

  1. wow! amazing! I remember when Connor watched us demo the Richardson House…he was like “Where am I going to sleep??” remember, he was about 6. hahahaha…praying for good weather and wise decisions!


  2. Thank you Connie…we truly appreciate the prayers!! We couldn’t have come this far without this entire journey being covered in prayer.
