Boom truck loading the foundation
with block. Bricklayers are ready
to start laying block.

the crawl space floor. The headroom is
more than 5' tall; great for storage
The project scope includes installing
new shingles over the existing roof.
The color scheme is changing from
brown to black..
Lumber package is being dropped for
the carpenters to begin the framing.
2"x12"s are used for the joist framing
to accommodate the weight of large
gatherings. This makes the floor solid
with very little deflection.

down for an extra strong sub floor.

Its Christmas Eve.
