Studio News: Moving Along

Upon deciding to build a major new addition to your home, preparing yourself for the demolition (utter destruction) of a perfectly good part of your (fairly new) house is a must. Knowing that jobs like these always look worse before they look better can ease the anxiety.

Garage roof must come down. Funny how, at this stage,
the DEstruction looks surprisingly like CONstruction.


Holes are dug at the middle of the side walls of the garage.
New 36"x36"x18" footings will be poured under the existing wall footing.
These will support the new upright beams in the walls...

...that support the huge crossbeam. The whole works
bears the load of the 2nd story.
