New Practice Facility and some pictures!

In the last month work has begun on transforming the house and property purchased this spring into a new golf practice facility.  Work began June 1st and this week the house was finally removed after all the utilities were disconnected. We are on schedule to seed the complex around August 15th.  In the next few weeks, work will begin on grading the property.  Before the house was torn down, it was used for 3 days of training by the Lake Zurich Fire Department.  They were very thankful to have real house to practice on.  They could not use fire, but they practiced cutting holes in the roof, walls and preformed simulated drills of search and rescue with artificial smoke.
During removal of the house.  It took about 1/2 day to tear it down.  All valuable items in the house were removed and sold.  The remaining parts to the house were sent to a recycling company.
