Stone Bank — Take Down That Wall

Posted in Dismantling the back tagged , , , , , , , at 8:17 pm by stonebankblog

For those who said it would be “a cold day in Bottineau” before anything was done about the Stone Bank — you better put on your thermals, because something is happening.

This stuff had to come out of the Stone Bank before the wall can come down.

Interior walls, window trim, a dropped ceiling frame and all kinds of rubble have been removed from the Stone Bank in preparation for dismantling the back of the building.

During the past week, our contractor has been preparing the interior of the building for what comes next.

And that is?
— The roof over the back 20 feet of the structure will be removed.

— The back wall will be pulled down.

— The dismantling of a section of the side wall will continue.
(Not necessarily in that order.)

There is no master plan and untold variables are at play here. Our stone mason and general contractor have a plan and we will see how it all comes together. Or apart!

Any questions? Comment here and we will do our best to get the answers.



  1. Oh, by the way, it will be a cold day in Bottineau. Our overnight low is supposed to be 5 below and our daytime high tomorrow, a balmy 12 degrees!
