All in a half day’s work: House no more in Menlo Park
When a green fence goes up around a 1950s era ranch-style house in Menlo Park locals know it usually means the house is coming down, to be replaced most often with a two-story mini-mansion with basement.
But when a green fence went up around a home on the corner of White Oak and Lemon in Menlo Park, we were particularly surprised as it hardly looked like a tear down. Alas, it was still “just a ranch house” and the “house-eating” machinery arrived last Friday morning.
We chatted with one of the workmen, and he told us that it would be demolished in three to four hours. He was right. By the time we swung by later in the afternoon, it was a pile of wood.
