Nice work if you can find it. I'd even take Visa or Amex, at those prices. You be our marketing man, OK?

Does it still work?
You could use it to haul down material and make work that much easier.

Give it a Splat!

The brick is solid and red in color not sure if it is salmon color, I will try to get pics. the pine is heart pine and seems to be solid . has a redish patina to it and has been kept dry.

Do you have any pictures of the building? That would help quite a bit.

When was the structure built? Is it Heart Pine Lumber? Is the brick solid and is it salmon colored? If so the market is fetching .50-.70 per brick or anywhere from $250.00-$350.00 per pallet of 500 brick stacked and cleaned. If its heart pine Lumber its bringing anywhere from .25-.50 per board foot for 2x10's, 2x12's and Bigger beams. The little boards they will probably take for free at your cost save you on the dump fees. If its old growth pine tongue and groove 5" wide thats gold!! Salvage it!!! The metal market ain't nothing to write home to momma about, but it will give you some up front money!! That building is what about 21,000 Sq/Ft if the building is at least 100 years you should bid cheap if you can market your material and have some resources to sit on it for a while since the GC's who buy this material will be in short demand right now. Post some pics and I'll break it down for you. If not sure who to sell your lumber to or brick call you any and all Lumber yards you can find, restoration companies, millwork companies and the first 10 Remodeling companies in the yellow pages they usually pay more to advertise and have a bigger list of business. According to your post you seem to have plenty of room to tear it down I would tear the roof off first, take out the 3rd and 2nd Floor then once the floors are out cave in the walls and hire you a crew to stack brick all day. Pop the tongue and groove up cut the beams and drop them to the 2nd floor and repeat the process. Anyhow if you have any questions repost and I'll try to help ya out.

What condition are the tin ceiling tiles in? Is there lead paint on them? How old is the building, and do you think the ceiling tiles are original installation in the building?

Hello, I have been given the opportunity to bid on a demo of local downtown building in small town in Alabama.
Need help in pricing. No contaminants present. The building is 3 story brick structure. Flat roof, tung and groove pine floors, rough 2X12 floorjoist on post and beam structure. Very good condition. tung and groove pine is about 1 1/2 " thick x 5" wide. tin ceiling tiles in 1st floor only. Old mechanical elevator and sprinkler pipes , minimal piping and mechanical equipment. Very few partitioned walls on top 2 floors several on lower floor.
Building is 105 feet X 65 feet approx. 45' tall . Street on front and one side vacant lot at rear and fenced empty lot on other side.
We are estimating 200 loads + just an estimate..
I would appreciate any help.
