Read more about the baronial brick manse that will replace the home demolished here:

“A worthy demo sacrifice” — Clay Chapman, Decatur builder.

The “1,000 Year House” nears completion. This 5,300 square-foot “sustainable” building¬†has consumed more than 100,000 bricks, 124,000 pounds of concrete, and an unspecified number of tons of slate roofing shingles. All of the new building materials required energy to extract, process, and transport the raw materials: brick clay, slate, granite (lintels), and concrete.
