Update on Crane Crunched House

They got the crane off and the blue tarp on. I hope they are getting a pretty big discount.

There's a notch...

...where the boom crunched the roof.

It was quite a sight, a conversation starter, and an easy blog post: .See "House Crunched by Crane Today in Morningside"

But I prefer the quiet neighborhood look.


  1. Wonder how one repairs joists that are damaged like that. You think they are going to have to repair several joists from the inside and then multiple sheets of new plywood over them? As well as a section of shingles? Those shingles on the roof as a whole look fairly decent, at least the roofline is simple, that will help in case new shingles all around are needed. Your thoughts?

    1. I wonder what it did inside, to ceilings, walls, and furnishings. I wonder how hard it hit. Probably rattled the house pretty good.

  2. That's one tree service company I won't ever be using. Thanks, but what a scare!

    1. Tree work is very dangerous, if you research any tree care company accident records they all have accidents, some involve cranes, bucket trucks, chainsaws, personal injury, it's the nature of the business. It's very nieve to say I'm not using them. Let's see how they resolve the situation and implement company safety policies. Talk to the owners of the house they will be able to say how they are doing to resolve the matter.

  3. They have a great reputation around here. No one hurt.

  4. My company uses Boutte. Will continue to use them.

    Blessing no one was hurt.
