It was once a cute, three-bedroom house right on the edge of Lake Michigan.

But now, crews in Wisconsin are working to demolish it.

That’s because big chunks of the home have been falling into the lake since last year.

It started with the porch, and the owners got out. They ended up letting the house go into foreclosure after finding out it was going to cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to fix up.

Since then, little by little, more of the house has fallen into the lake, including some of the yard and part of the basement.

Now, the home hangs 50 feet over the water.

It had been scheduled to be demolished a few times over the past year, but the work was put off until now because of weather and equipment problems.
