|Day 2, January 11, 2011. Strengthening the edge of the slab.|
|Day 3, new studs going up.|
The short but double brick wall on the west end of the porch was torn down on the 3rd day. Tearing it down made space for a bigger bathroom than we had planned :).
|End of day 3.|
The old framing along the edge of the roof was slightly twisted, so chains were attached across the porch to twist it into position. Luckily it worked and left the other wall intact.
The big snow storm hit on February 1st and 2nd. Can you imagine what that would have been like if the walls had still been open and blown snow onto the insulation and all our stuff in the attic? The tyveck held up well to our relief and the snow was blown away at that corner of the house,
|The BIG snow storm wasn't so bad after all...|
