House #36: Foundation/Rear Yard

August 15, 2012 · 1 comment

We’re still waiting for full building permits for The WI-1 House, but in the meantime, our foundation company was able to pull permits for the foundation portion of the job and get that work done…

As a reminder, we had an exterior wall that was bowing/deflecting quite a bit, so the foundation company came in, excavated the wall from the interior, straightened it and braced it with steel beams. While they were in there, we also had them cut a hold for a large egress window in the basement wall, put in a big window well on the exterior, tear up all the old concrete in the backyard, tear off the old overhang and grade the back yard.

Here are some pictures of the result (here and here are some before pictures of the rear yard):
