The Back Wall is Finished
The back brick wall has slowly been emerging over the last two weeks. Above you can see where the window will go. The lintels are brought in to hold the brick up above the door and window. From the interior of the house it looks like it is going to be a nice space. Above the doors and window is built a red layer of "soldiers" (as they stand up right). These match the original look in the windows above. The interior is beginning to not feel so open. This is as high as the back wall will go before the roof is added. These are the steels that have been brought in. There are four steels that will be bolted together to create a frame. The frame will be placed in the side walls, in the floor (you can see the trench being jackhammered out above) and across the ceiling to hold up the back wall of the house. The steel will allow the middle white post you see above to be removed. Another back view of the finished wall from inside. And from the upstairs window.
