Next Episode of Demolition Man is
Join the Demolition Man Lawrie and his crew of misfits, as they crash and bash everything from heritage properties to industrial warehouses for cash. Don't be fooled, Lawrie's not just a demolition man; he's also a treasure hunter. He salvages stuff that would otherwise end up at the tip, finding rare items which he's accumulated into one of the world's best collections, worth millions. From vintage cars to buckets of old roofing screws, Lawrie has found it all. What he finds he drags back to his shop to sell, and he knows how to sell it for a quid.
Buying. Selling. Wheeling. Dealing. Few can out-do the Demolition Man when it comes to making a buck. In this debut episode, right hand man, Benny ‘The Human Crane' learns the dark arts of salvage when he uncovers rare red stained glass in a country cottage.
From his shop in Camperdown Victoria, Demolition Man Lawrie Voutier turns a nice buck selling salvaged building materials and rare antiques. Today he's agreed to help clear his old mate Johnny's property out at cost, and anything he can salvage for himself is a bonus. Old Johnny worked in an auction house – so Lawrie knows there'll be some treasure buried amongst the junk – if he can find it!
Lawrie Voutier is the sultan of salvage. So when he sets his sights on a 90-year-old hardwood staircase in a Brighton mansion, Lawrie gets the A Team together. Today this consists of Benny, and 12-year-old son Charlie. Like father like son – this is Charlie's chance to prove he is well and truly a demo man!
In Ballarat Victoria, Lawrie has arrived at a well-known antique auction House. The Demo Man has come to collect a copper statue, but he can't help finding a few other items he'd like to add to his collections. Standing in his way are two of the best in the business. So begins the deal-making dance.
Laurie Voutier loves a bargain, but recently it's been all spend and no sell, so wife Sue has put the breaks on the get the books balanced. Lucky for Lawrie, he's got a shop full of stock. This calls for a fire sale!
The Demo Man's son Charlie loves hanging out with the big boys and toys so Lawrie drops him off at a job to help demolish on old farmhouse. But with his old man gone, Jabba decides to let the twelve year old operate the excavator. Charlie's learned from his gung-ho Dad but this job requires a more delicate approach.
When his former junkyard mate decides to end their twenty-year feud and start speaking to Lawrie again, the Demo Man seizes the opportunity to buy some stuff from the old timer. Lawrie's got his eye on some choice bluestone. But going through the mountains of junk, Lawrie spies something that he wants even more and won't take no for an answer.
Today Lawrie's off-loading one of his ancient steam traction engines to an interstate collector. It's 120 years old and hasn't budged for decades. But with Lawrie's trusty right-hand men, Jabba, Benny and son Charlie on the job, it could go either way.
Lawrie Voutier hates waste – especially when he can make a buck out of it at his shop. So when the Demo Man hears about some stables that need to be demolished in Geelong, he's keen to salvage first. But as the demo takes place and the roof comes off, what exactly is holding the wall up? Not much as it turns out.
Lawrie's ideal family outing is a road trip to an auction. So packing up the family and taking them to a Ballarat auction house, the Demo Man has his eyes on several items. But wife Sue only wants one.
