The demolition has been completed of the first of five homes at risk of falling into the sea after storms battered the Norfolk coast.
The chalets have been teetering on the edge of the cliff in Hemsby since Saturday.
Heavy machinery tore into the first chalet earmarked for demolition, razing it to the ground by Friday afternoon.
Great Yarmouth Borough Council said work on the other four properties would start on Saturday.
A spokesman for the council said: "Following assessments this morning, two demolition crews working for the council have successfully demolished number 206.
"From tomorrow, the contractor, Anglian Demolition and Asbestos Ltd, will start to work through the other four properties in turn.
"Any debris which lands on the beach will be removed and disposed of."
Fifteen residents had occupied the homes.
Coastal defence plan
Eight other properties also at significant risk of falling down the cliffs after the storm were being monitored, the council said.
The beach below the chalets has been sealed off while the work is done.
Brandon Lewis, MP for Great Yarmouth, who previously lived in Hemsby for 10 years, has visited the site.
He had said the private landowner of The Marrams, where the chalets are sited, needed to be involved in helping develop a coastal defence plan with the local authority.
The council said the cost of demolition would be discussed with insurance companies and a claim would be made to the government for funding.
On Monday, surplus sand will be transported from North Beach, Great Yarmouth, to fill the gap between the beach and the lifeboat shed.

A week ago, everyone in Hemsby thought they had got through the Beast from the East - but then strong easterly winds came along on Saturday.
Coastal engineer Bernard Harris said the sandbanks off Winterton and Hemsby and the "Hemsby hole" - a 98ft (30m) deep depression offshore - allows the waves to build up and hammer this coast.
I think they have lost 20ft (6m) to 30ft (9m) of sandy defences in a couple of days, which has put 13 houses on the edge, with five or six now over-hanging.
The houses will be dismantled and pulled away from the cliff edge so they do not cause a hazard or an environmental disaster as they are washed away on the tides.
