MOST of all, be respectful of your fellow Cubber's opinions. Don't expect to change someones belief system from a simple forum on the internet.

Congrats on your retirement and your annex. Hard decision to retire if you have the right job. Easy decision if not.
The only thing better than retirement is grandkids, and, .... well this is a family site. But, in a few weeks time, you'll be like the old commercial, "you'll wonder where the yeller went" .. you'll wonder where the time went. Always, something going on after your retire and many folks wanting part or all of your free time. "Now that you're retired, can you ???

I assume you have thought of it, or someone has mentioned it, but in the picture of the old house the power lines appear to be close enough that the fire department may not want to use it for training.

John, I have wondered about the lines myself. The fire department will be inspecting it after it is in my name to determine if they can burn it or not. One thing the Chief told me when I asked was how they go about it. He said after they have done all ther rescue training they will set a controlled fire on the top floor at one end and then put it out, they will continue with controlled fires until it is safe to allow it to burn completely.

My original plan was to dismantle it as some have mentioned. My insurance company won't allow that unless the person doing it shows proof of liability insurance. Once I have ownership next week I can dig into the walls and see how bad it really is. I have dismantled a few houses myself in my time and with my high lift and free time I just may have some lumber for my barn. If it is as bad as I suspect, then it goes to the fire fighters.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.
