Super Dave

Yesterday and today, I demolished a client’s old deck, to make room for a new one. I really like the “destruction” part of construction. There’s something primal about taking a sledgehammer, a saw, and a crowbar and ripping boards down.

The deck was on the back of a two-level house so it was about 8 or 10 feet up, and so I would rip and saw the boards up, throwing them down to the lawn below.

The scrap wood was cut to manageable pieces and loaded into a trailer, and the back of a pick-up truck.

We then drove all this to the local landfill facility, where we were weighed as we went in, and then weighed as we left.

The total load weighed 1.09 tons.

Now this is significant. First, I had to load all this at the job site and then unload it all at the landfill.

So as of today,I am able to lift 2.18 tons all by myself.

I am the strongest man in the world!

Imagine me making the “oh oh” sound that Tim Allen is famous for.

    You may be the strongest man in the world (did you ever see that old Kurt Russel flick from Disney?) but never, ever forget this one, important thing:

    This was the first thing that came to mind as soon as you started talking about using a sledgehammer to tear up the deck.

    Nice blog by the way… I’ve enjoyed reading it.
