Front Pillar Reconstruction

July 10, 2012

One of the things Alexandra has griped about since we moved in is how the leaning pillars on the front of the house make it look like our whole house is dilapidated.  Well, we are finally doing something about it!  After a bit of a struggle with permitting our contractor has finally started working on the pillars.

The first day he put together this questionable, but surprisingly sturdy scaffolding support.

Then while Alexandra and I were in Seattle for the 4th of July weekend, he tore out the remaining columns, excavated deeper foundations for them, placed forms and rebar.  Now we are waiting for our inspection then on to pouring the concrete!  We should have new columns by this weekend!
