Another Remodel Project
February & March 2007

Before we could dig foundations for the new rooms, the old enclosed patio room must go.  The sliding glass doors have already been taken out in this picture.

Mitch is jack hammering out some of the old foundation, back stairs, sidewalk, and slab under the old patio room.
All together we hauled 24,000 lbs of concrete and broken brick to the land fill.  The good bricks were given away quickly by placing a "for free" ad on Craigslist.

Almost a month has passed since the previous picture.  We've spent that time doing a lot of digging, setting rebar and concrete forms.
Looking towards the back door.  New foundation is required under the back wall of the kitchen.
