the further adventures of the demolition diaries

Xander takes a selfie totally covered in filth. Does it look like she's tan? Or slightly blue? Wrong...its 100 year old dirt. Also this spoon came down from the ceiling while demoing.

Re-decoration of the space formerly know as the pigeon toilet

The day starts with hazmat suits, moves into realizing that there are in fact maggots in the pigeon shit that we are shoveling, and ends with the discovery of a baby bird that we take in to animal rescue. Who knew how much baby pigeons look like llamas? oh also there was a crazy skeleton where a bird impaled itself on a medieval looking bird repelling device.





When life gives you pears

you'd better break out the scaffolding and pick the dang things!

gutter punk


Our pal Mike from back in the day, swoops back into our world to save the day & by save the day I mean finish the roofs and mastermind a new wooden gutter system.

THANK YOU!!!!

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
To all the amazing volunteers who came out on Sunday. After having to switch the day last second because of the rain, we weren't sure that people could come out - but they did!!
And it was AWESOME!!!



We filled another 30 yard dumpster with rubble... did some major gardening cleanup work, moved all the tubs up the stairs, moved all the heavy furniture down the stairs, started painting our new wooden gutters... and more!


And when we were done we feasted on an amazing meal provided by Advisory Council member Lucie Searle.



An all out success!!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!!!!
