UPDATE 2: Demo & Excavation
Time For Some Teardown
Demo begins to prepare for the Addition construction. Outside, our clients tore down the old pergola and removed a portion of the brick paver patio themselves. While removing the patio bricks, our clients discovered a concrete pad under the brick. White Crane demoed just enough of the concrete slab to make room for the new Addition. To save money, the homeowners will tackle removing the rest of the concrete patio themselves after the Addition is complete. The White Crane crew demoed the existing Kitchen down to the studs, however, we saved an original butler’s door that will be relocated to the new Mudroom.
Preparing The Exterior
Once the Addition is framed in and sealed from the outside elements, we will demo the balcony over the breakfast nook and west exterior wall, opening the home to the Addition. We’ve removed the brick from the area of the exterior that will open to the new Addition. The finished Addition will feature new brick selected by the mason to match the original brick creating a seamless transition between the existing house exterior and the new construction.
