Hi to all,
thank you for your letters, advice and support. I've had a very busy and
tense day. I finally talked to Shawn Galvin, who helped out a great deal.
He talked to the contractor who has the demolition permit, he want the
kitchen cabinets, stove sink ref. windows and doors and furnace, other than
that its rubble to him. Not to me!!
The parts he doesn't want are the parts I need, so this is the offer I sent,
if the town of Middletown gives him a letter of "Contribution" for the value
of the home, will he dismantle it easily, mark beams and put it in an area of
storage until I can raise the $$ to rebuild it in it's historical form?
Sounds like a great deal right?
The contractor said it sounded okay to him, but he wants the okay from his
accountant first, if it isn't going to benefit him to do it that way it will
cost $5000.00 roughly to have him remove it easily.
So I'm waiting for the accountant to let us know which way it's to be. I'm
hopeing the contribution, because 5000 is a lot of money to raise in just a
I will keep you posted. Again thank you to all who have written, We really
need to get these old homes registered if we can so this doesn't happen
again, NYC is buying out everything it can and historical register is the
only thing they seem hesitate at, notice I didn't say stop, because there is
very little stopping a train at full steam. The worst part is many of our
own are feeding the logs into the engine!!
