Should it Go?
If you can't find a way to make the existing house work on the site, then you've probably already answered this question (assuming the house doesn't fall into the MUST stay category).
But before you call out the bulldozers, there's more than one way to say bye bye to the existing house. Take the time to consider whether the house is suitable for relocation. First up - is it on stumps or a slab? If it's on a slab, demolishing is the disposal method of choice. But if it's on stumps - keep asking questions.
The ‘ins and outs’ along with the costs of relocating a house are a topic all by themselves, but here are a few things to consider:
- the condition of the house
- site access for removal
- roofing materials - some are better than others
- how many pieces would the house need to be cut up into for removal
- is there asbestos in the house
