Modern Addition, Traditional Minneapolis Home

A remodel is underway. Take a look inside.

Follow along as we build a contemporary 2-story Addition on their traditional American Foursquare style home.


Pouring Frost Footings

Frost footings support the addition’s new foundation. The footings prevent settling that can damage the new structure. Concrete is poured into wooden forms to create the footings. Additionally, a form was built under the back door area to repair a crumbling portion of the home’s existing foundation.

The excavated area is prepped for pouring the frost footings.

Block, also known as CMU, will be used to lay the foundation.

The Block

Block, also known as CMU (concrete masonry unit), will be used to build the foundation. A waterproofing layer is applied to the block, making it look like it’s been painted black. Next, insulation is applied to the foundation.

The foundation is finished. It's time to start framing!
