Dear Sharma

               At the time of dismenteling the old house, take care that all the usable items shold be removed safely.In general in the old house there are wooden batten, if they are in good condition than can be used for making frames of door and windows. The old bricks can be used after scraping and washing. The broken bricks can be used as brick bats for foundation and debris can be used for filling under floor to raise the floor level.
