Poor little house

Last week another storm hit Newburgh and now only three of the exterior walls are standing. We knew the fourth wall had to come down. Mother nature sped the process along.

The last few weeks has been spent teeing up taking ownership.

Instead we are seeking a state variance to conduct selective demolition and abatement at the same time. This will be monitored by a certified abatement specialist.
