Workers remove cypress boards from the former Fiddler's Green restaurant in Vilano Beach on Wednesday morning, June 19, 2013, before demolishing the building later this week. By DARON DEAN, daron.dean@staugustine.com

A methodical, three-day demolition of the old Fiddler’s Green restaurant building in Vilano Beach began Wednesday morning.

The construction company contracted by St. Johns County, Construction Debris Removal, had workers taking out salvageable materials. The most common material saved was the pecky cypress wood.

St. Johns County Director of Construction Mike Rubin said the panels of the cypress wood are valued because of their natural resistance to termites.

It will be stored and possibly reused for a future building project at the site on 2750 Anahma Drive or somewhere else.
