Project Update-Franklin Avenue

Added on by keith messick.

Demolition and excavation has begun on Franklin Avenue.  The house, prior to the start of this project, consisted of an older main level (at street level) and a newly added upper level.  The project involves adding a new lower level and completely remodeling the main level.

Where there once was a house.  The main level has been completely removed (demolished).  All that remains is the upper level.  This upper level was built as a stand alone structure.  As seen in the picture above, it cantilevers over the space where the main level use to be.  When the project is complete, this upper level will be reattached to the main house and the entire house (all three levels) will be one structure.

New lower level. Excavation is almost complete under the main level of the house.  This is the space that the lower level will occupy.  Drilling for caissons will begin shortly.  After the caissons are poured, the remaining dirt can be removed.
