Garage Demo is Complete
garage interior after demo
The interior of the garage was gutted last week and the main house is being tied into it. We will also have to replace the rotten sheathing as well as some rotten bottom plates. This is the perfect opportunity to straighten the exterior walls and bolt them down to the foundation. We will also be redoing the window headers, king studs, cripples and sills as they were not framed particularly well. The garage portal (garage door opening) will need substantial upgrades and now that we have it exposed we will call the engineer to come and see what need to be added to bring it up to current codes.
