We’re back with more on our porch renovation!

We started to break up the concrete slab on the porch, only to find that there was no footing or gravel to support the concrete!

We also discovered an existing crack that could allow water to come in. Better to fix now than later!

Once that was taken care of we excavated for the footing and started to pour the concrete:

Below you can see the wall is complete and we are waiting to pour the slab. There are some brick repairs that need to be done before we can pour the concrete. We should be able to pour on Tuesday if the weather cooperates!

Below you can see we are getting ready to install a washer and dryer. Turns out the basement floor is out of level, so we built platforms to allow the appliances to be level.

Mission accomplished! Ready for some serious washing:

Until next time,
