August 21, 2009

The windows, doors, door-frames, threshholds, and ceiling have all been removed. This has exposed lots of interesting things and interesting problems. The concrete on the majority of the house had already been repaired more than once--and not very well. So the crumbling walls would not support much of anything until something was done to patch, repair, and strengthen them. A sample shipment of grancrete proved to be the most effective method for repairing and strengthening the walls.

The ceiling has been removed, exposing the attic beams. The vertical beams really weren't supporting anything. Clothes-hanger wire is what is supporting the two chimneys. The other signs of age and original workmanship are readily visible.
