One too many storms and down it came. Now there is no trace of the house that was. And there’ll probably never be a tiny house on this tiny lot again. The City of Newburgh’s building codes do not permit it. I’m sad.
The last few weeks has been spent teeing up taking ownership. Insurance will soon be bound, the closing documents have been executed and sent to the city’s attorney, and we have been working to plan demolition. It’s a requirement to test for asbestos in New York state, but this is impossible since we are unable to access the interior. 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.
