If you wanted a demolished house (a very specific demolished house), it would take about the same effort to produce it as it would to produce a whole house.

"I don't want you to think that a messy room has more entropy than a tidy one, which some people use as an example. That's not the case"
"Reconciling thermodynamic and state definitions of Entropy"
This shows that representations of tidy or messy rooms (or bombsites), etc, as are sometime used at introductory level, were only ever meant to be analogies to explain what happens at the micro-scale, not taken literally to apply to the macro-scale.
Creager has mistaken the analogy for the thing, and that is just one of his errors.(Ignoring the entropy created in building the house - which is still out there in some part of the system - is another, major one!)
