This is what the property looks like on Tuesday, March 24, the day after the house was demolished.
Last month, First Selectwoman Pat Llodra said Manafort Brothers, a construction company with ties to the town, agreed to demolish the house for free as a way to honor the victims of the shooting.
Manafort's offer was expected to save about $30,000 that Newtown planned to spend with money from an insurance fund set aside for costs associated with the shootings, the News-Times reports
All that remains at 36 Yogananda Street in Newtown is lot of land, which is expected to remain as open space.
