I’ve never been to kempsville, Georgia, where the most famous building of all time is now crumbling, and I’ve been following the story of its demolition with a sense of awe and disbelief.
As you might imagine, building the first 2,500 square feet of a house is a daunting undertaking, especially in Georgia, home to a number of historical landmarks that are not easily accessible.
The house was built in 1787, and it’s now a pile of rubble.
I started with the basics: The basement of the house is about 6 feet wide, and the house’s original ceiling was 1,000 feet high.
I drilled a hole in the wall with a 6-inch hole saw, and then I dug another hole in order to access the main floor.
When the house was first built, the basement was the only room that could be accessed.
It’s now full of rubble, and you have to walk up a steep staircase to reach the first floor, which has been completely destroyed.
Once you get to the first level, you have a lot of work to do.
The entire house was constructed on wooden beams, which had to be cut down to make room for the new roof.
Because of the extreme height, it was impossible to put a carpet on the first story, and a lot less so for the second story.
After I finished cutting the beams down, I removed the beams, but not the floors.
I then removed the concrete foundation, which is what made the house so dangerous.
I had to cut the foundations out of the concrete, and also cut the joists.
Then, I used a jigsaw to remove all the rubble and debris, which was then placed on a sheet of plywood.
Finally, I had the walls and roof built out.
I needed about 2,200 square feet for the first floors, and another 1,200 for the main floors.
Now that I’ve done everything I could to save the building, I decided to do the second phase.
The basement is just over 2,600 square feet.
I started by removing the roof and the foundation.
From here, I cut a hole at the bottom of the basement to put the building on top of the existing roof.
I put the first-floor balcony on top, which will house the main house.
Next, I made a small hole in my roof and drilled a new hole in it, to allow the first basement level to be accessible from the first main floor floor.
Then, I drilled another hole to let the new basement level be accessible for the next floor.
At this point, the whole house was ready for construction.
What I didn’t expect was that it took about 1,600 hours for all of this to be completed.
Construction took longer than I thought it would, and even then, the roof had to come down.
And now the house sits on top a foundation that is 6,000 years old, which means it will take another 10,000 to 12,000 hours to build the rest of the home.
I was able to get the job done, but it was still a lot longer than what I expected.
Here’s what it looked like when I finished building the house:
