Here we just finished unloading the trailer and we were starting on removing overgrown laurel bushes at (about 20 feet tall, they are even taller than the house).
All of the vegetation that is going to be taken away has been cleared and grubbed, and the house is now exposed. The remaining laurels that are in the background had to stay for erosion control.
These photos show the grubbing and clearing of overgrown vegetation and the demolition and recycling of a house in West Seattle's Pigeon Point neighborhood.
At this point we have cleared enough away that you can see the house.
The excavator is taking the first bite out of the house and placing it in the recycling container.
