We have a project currently under construction - a small addition onto an existing house with a full gut and renovation to the existing house and structure. We are very excited to see the progress of the project. The contractor is very professional, organized and knowledgeable. Between the client, the contractor and the architect we have a great team all working together towards an excellent result. The experience so far has been great. There have been hiccups along the way, but with all of our efforts we are overcoming the obstacles together. Here are some progress photos.
As the excavation is less than six feet below grade, shoring was provided on all sides of the excavation using steel piles and plywood. The addition includes steel columns that will rest of concrete columns embedded in a concrete block foundation wall. Here the rebar for the columns protrudes from the top of the concrete footing currently being troweled in place.
