9/12 – Foundation Work Begins!

September 12, 2006 at 10:42 am (732 Walnut Updates)

After months of trying to get bids from foundation repair experts, we finally settled on David Hayes Construction.  David is experienced at this sort of project and wasn’t scared off after seeing what was involved.   

We had intended to have this work done in June, not September, but we’re glad to finally see some progress on a critical step in our restoration of the Wright House.

  Foundation Work        Foundation Close UpWith a solid foundation, we will be able to level the rest of the house (it’s sagging in a few spots up front) and then it’s time for a new roof.  Looks like we’re going to go with Egner Roofing.  They will be able to squeeze us in just in time to avoid daily rainfall INSIDE the house.  Literally, every time it rains outside, it rains inside.  I’ve set up buckets in the really bad spots and dump the garbage can size barrels each morning.  Needless to say I’m glad we have had a very dry summer!
