BUILD A HOUSE (teardown)

Hi… just to be brief let me explain how I got the idea for this series. One of my neighbors had just bought the property across the street and decided to build new. This was not something I was aware of until one day while driving home I saw the bulldozer, and luckily I had my trusty digital camera with me which by the way is a Nikon Coolpix and approximately 5 or six years old with only 3.6 megapixels. When you see the pictures I think you’ll agree this is all you need for most applications. Remember it’s not the size it’s how you use it.
Anyway I was going to take a series of pictures just for myself, when the idea hit me to share these with everyone. Sure it is a big commitment but I’m ready to tackle it. As far as I know no one has ever attempted this before which gives me plenty incentive to complete the task. If this works out the way it should you will see a house being created from the ground up. For those who don’t know the sort of project usually takes approximately a year in my area. Lots of time for discussion so sit back relax and enjoy the pictures if your knowledgeable contribute if you’re not ask questions and it’s all good. The one thing I can guarantee as this will be an education that as far as I can tell

These guys must know what they are doing
note:How close they are to the neighbors




Hi Bob,

What part of the county might you be talking about?


Hi Carl…Sorry I neglected to mention this is Harwood Heights Illinois a small suburb surrounded by Chicago on its northwest side or southeast of O’Hare Airport. So for all intents and purposes we’ll call it Chicago. The property lots are on the small side and it’s popular to tear down the attics and build a second story.

Ok first glich ,whats the best way to transfer my images and is there a limit on MB

Hey Bob, yes there is a limit, I reduce mine to 640 X 480, and under 100 Kb then you can load upto 5 on each post.

Thanks Rick however I am used to browsing my files for pics while not needing a url address.Can you explain briefly how I get the url address.
Told u this is an education even for me .


Is there any reason I can’t seem to get in and edit my posts to add photos.?
Also would like to add photos with captions but the size limit keeps me from doing so.Yikes any help would be appreciated.

This may help:


I think you are doing a great service to all NACHI members but honestly I think that the pictures are small. [maybe it’s just me]

Try using paint, or office document for captions.

Good luck with this,we look forward to the entire process!!!

Thank you this will help alot .
Gotta run and make $ .
Already posted on my DEL.iCIO.US

Mario I could not agree more as the photo aspect is the most important part of the whole thing.
Must find a way to resolve the issue within the confines of this forum.
Gotta go till later.
Rocky start.

Hurry they’re waiting for you back at activerain :stuck_out_tongue: :stuck_out_tongue:

Thanks Larry read your post earlier and your link maybe gave me an idea to go PDF on my NACHI version to get around the limitation thing.
Thanks again BOB.E
