I don't think we will be able to save the building.
So, in the spring, I will probabaly demo it myself and "carefully" save the cans as best I'm able.

COME TO THINK OF IT, THE "R" RATING OF THOSE CANS SET IN MORTAR IS PROBABLY LESS THAN A WOOD ONLY FRAMED GARAGE WITH SHEETROCK! LOL!

You could save/repair it easier and cheaper than you can replace it.

the cans are cool but its the ugliest garage I have ever saw, If it is saved it would be just like another roadside attraction like the "Worlds biggest Hair Ball" in the Chevy Chase movie.
I think it is more valuable disassembled. DEMO IT

I think i would have to demo it too, and have a nice new, bigger garage with a bunch of shelves for oil cans. I think if i didn't, i would always wonder what was in there. Just for the entertainment alone! (hours of treasure hunting) Have fun!

SEE, my exact point, years from now it would be known as the garage built with coffee cans. A Meaningless building IMO

Please take a picture of the roof framing when you open things up. The round roof may have some interesting structure to it. Certainly had some unusual wall framing!

There is a big difference in cans in mortar with lime than cans in dirt. I am sure that there is going to be some deconstruction return money especially if you do most of the work yourself. If the concrete is packed tight it will be less recovery value, and I wonder if all the cans are empty. Then were do you store all the cans while you do the deconstruction so that they are not getting more dented and scratched? May be a big party of old gas guys and lots of boxes. Check the upper structure and maybe some nice items up there. you will be starting all over with the foundation anyway, so there goes the slab also. Do you have to remove it? Less cost to keep it and build another.

Cribbing & replacing a section at a time IF the foundation is good, is what some of us are suggesting.

I wonder what several hundred Polly cans,Avio cans,or Palomino cans encased in mortar are worth$$$$$
I would have to look and see what was there. Its kinda like a time capsule. What cans were around back when that old building was constructed??
