The first annex comes down as the first step of demolishing and removing this Milk River elevator

  • Post category:Family

It started with getting inside the annex with a chain saw and cutting the annex off from top to bottom through each of the interior bins. Then an excavator starts to cut through the end. Similar to how a lumberjack will cut a wedge on the side of the tree that they want to fall.

They leave the outside walls while they cut out the second set of bins from the center, and then its time to start taking out the outside walls, letting gravity do its thing. You can see the cut made by the chainsaw is starting to slowly widen.
