Bringing Down the House…..

well maybe not the whole house….. just the first floor.

Heres a look at how we fixed the fire damage at 70 Glenwood St. If you remember from my previous post(video or photos), the fire in this property started in the basement and burnt all the floor joists and support beams in the front half of the house. So to fix it we had to cut out the whole floor. Luckily I was there with my camera to capture the whole thing. Heres a look:
