Construction continues on the addition despite the frigid conditions. We’ve had a couple of rain delays, but progress is slowly being made. To date, the footings have been poured, the main posts have been set, the new stairs have been framed up, the landing slab for the stairs has been poured, and we have the beginnings of a knee wall. The weather has been really crappy, but the crew plows through like the pros they are. It doesn’t look like much has been accomplished, but here are a few photos from days 3, 4, and 5.
The pile of tools that currently resides out my back door.
Day 3 - The final stages of demolition are done - this is all that was left of the old stairs and landing.
Day 3 - The new footings have been poured for the main support posts.
Day 3 - The support slabs for the new stairs and landing.
Day 4 - The new stair treads are embedded in the concrete slab. Talk about safety!
Day 5 - The perminent support posts are in place and the knee wall begins to take shape.
Day 5 - The inside view. The doorways should be framed up today.
