Shouldn't harm the board under what so ever if you put a block there first to lever off of

Yeah. But during my kitchen Reno I bent a cheap jimmy bar like a fuggen pretzel. sh*t steel is a waste of time. I’ve abused the Christ out of my little hart wrecking bar smashing it into tight places with a 24oz hammer. Hasn’t broken yet.

Thank you fellas for more information
I must continue (though I took an rdo today)my mate would do it on his own and that's not safe.
Apart from the injuries, we are having fun.
There is no time limit, so not in a rush.
Going to clean up the sh*t wood then start on the frame
Will probably saw the floorboards, depends on what we find.

Well after 5 rdos (forced) we were back into it today, for about 3 hours
Took the top weatherboards off with the sledgehammer!, this also removed the eaves
The rest came off easy, in one piece. Now the frame !!!!
After much debate, we decided to remove the wall joists, at either end.
Using ropes (and super human strength), we were able to pull the whole frame over.
Now it's only, clean up the wood and remove the concrete stumps
Anybody the wants to help with the stumps, is most welcome
Cheers Gra
P.s. Adrian, but we crushed a rose bush. Can you come and trim it ????

Don't know for sure yet as, the floor is still intact
On Thursday my markita & mates chain saw should fix that.
Then we'll know for sure. Ones we can see are 6 to 12 inches above ground, with a bit of "coathanger" wire out the top
