Thanks for all of the input, guys.
When spring arrives I will be tearing the garage down.
I will keep you posted with pictures of what we find.

Well. After a agonizingly long and particularly irritating winter, spring has “finally” arrived. So the demo begins.

The roof coming down.




These pieces fell out from above the overhead doors.






All that's left is the walls.




My good friend Rich, starting on the cans. He and I are doing the demo.




I would guess that roughly half the cans are worth saving. This is representative of the condition of most.



Others are nicer and a few quite nice. We will be sorting them all by brand and condition. And we have discovered a few unusual ones. Unusual to us, anyway, and will post pix soon.

First section nearly done.




Rich, contemplating the next section.




The task will become more tedious as the outer layer of cement contains chicken wire.

Kevin.

I found a dug out north of Belfield that was lined with quart cans, a lot of them being Avio and Ace High quarts!! Most were destroyed but did get a fair amount of them. That was 20 years ago, sold a lot of them before i knew what i had. There are still cans lining the walls but scared the darn thing is going to fall in on me. Want to take a chance?? HaHa.

There's got to be a constant smile on your face the whole time you are laboring these garage walls down to the ground LOL!

The cans pictured so far are quite common. Are there any unusual ones so far?

Any chance you've found about a half dozen of these ?

Well. We are making progress. One flipping can at a time. Gawd ! ! !




The preferred method is to pound on the outside of the wall with a post mall.
That breaks up the cement and helps loosen the cans.




Most can have cement stuck to the top, so we pop it with a hammer to remove most big chunks. Many cans still have cement stuck in the spout hole. And others have chunks of cement rattling around inside.



Many have ended up in here.



Thus far we have saved over forty 30-gallon trash bags full.
And my next post will show you some of the cans we’ve saved.
