No reason why not, run a grinder along the horizontal mortar joints as you get to them to make them easier to break, you wil get a few damaged but nothing much, the hardest part is cleaning the mortar off, well not that hard just time consuming.

thats what i was hoping its a solid built garage and would be a shame to just demolish it

only thing is i wouldnt be doing ths myself pay a builder to do it if possible just reckon would be cheaper than a demolision and rebuild

if you take it down would you need planning permission to rebuild it?

I'd imagine a demo and rebuild would be cheaper as labour is a large charge and the block by block pull down would be time consuming.

Cheaper to supply some dolies with beer money to do that part:whistling:

you could pray for a monster earthquake. It might jump. Obviously you need the wind blowing in the direction you want it to move when the earthquake happens.

Why not extend the front of the garage and take down part of the rear of the garage, thus leaving you with the garage the same size but further forward and hopefully shouldnt cost you as much money.

you have got to be joking..........the amount of dust and effort is not worth it.

bricks and blocks are cheap at the moment.

I do cut-outs for french doors from windows and its the worst part of the job
I could not ever imagine using a disk cutter to take down a whole garage...you would
have to be an absolute idiot , seriously
