Take a look at some of our recent renovations Ohio:
As you can see this project required extensive work. Each piece affected the others. We removed the wall next to the hearth so that the room would connect with the deck area. For the deck, we replaced the lentils and shored up the support beneath the ceiling. The ceiling was originally supported by flexcore, which functions like lincoln logs. We were able to save that support. The beams had to be removed and replaced by steel beams. We also dug up and removed large rocks from underneath the house. We were in the process of removing an old spiral staircase and replacing it with a traditional staircase when we found tons of rocks beneath it. It didn’t throw us off though. We made sure to dig them all up before beginning with the new staircase.
The restoration of the chimney included leveling and widening it while tuckpointing the brick. We also had to remove the large tree that seemed to be growing from it.
As the hearth and chimney were reconstructed there were challenges. First, we had a blind wall we had to go around as we expanded the width – the original wall we had already knocked down. We built around a steel post that we inserted just inside where the original wall had been. A 40-foot LVL beam now runs through the roof for support
