Day 2,3: Fancy Foot Work


Note: Previously posted on FB Page, migrated to wordpress to maintain completeness of our journal.

With unpredictable weather, work has been stop and go for a few days.  In the past week, our concrete contractor North Star Foundations Inc. has been working hard to excavate and build two footings on the two sides of the house.  On the west side (down for you) we have a 4’x4’x12″ footing that will help hold up the garage and the green roof (which you can’t see from the picture).  On the east side (up), we have a gigantic 6′ wide footing about 10′ from grade for the areaway to ensure that the areaway stairs are structurally independent from the foundation walls.

Here’s our beautiful areaway retaining wall by North Star Foundations Inc.
