|Cement removed from the wall|
The porch frost wall was poured to the full depth of the basement foundation creating a 6 x 8 foot enclosure below the porch. It was not accessible from the basement.
We wanted to utilize the cement room below the porch. A power saw with a diamond tooth chain was used to cut through the cement basement wall opening a doorway to the cement enclosure below the porch.
A treated wood frame was constructed over the porch frost wall to serve as a foundation for the cement cap.
After the cement cap was poured, a planking pattern was laid.
|Each plank was carefully placed, tapped, then lifted off the cement|
