Military makeover? Tank brings down house

NEED TO KNOW
  • New owners demolish 150 year old building with unusual tool
  • Tank driver has taken down a barn before, but this is his first house

The new owners of a piece of land in the middle of Kasota, Minnesota, have decided to build a new house. But first, they had to do something about the house that was already standing there. 

Wrecking ball? Overkill

Sledgehammer? Underkill.

Bulldozer? Yawn.

No, in this age of "Extreme Makeover"s, "House Crashers" and generally getting HGTV'd, when it comes to demolition, we like to put on a show. So no one in Kasota was disappointed when a tank showed up to be the star of this one.

HLN affiliate KARE was there on Sunday to watch as a former British military workhorse took just four passes through the 150-year-old structure to take it down to the ground.

If that tank looks familiar to you ... it may be because this is not the first time you've seen it (or one like it) on HLN. We featured Drive-A-Tank, the company that provided the heavy metal for this military style makeover, on HLN back in February.
