The Kuppersmith home renovation project follows the extensive renovation of a two-story, Tudor style home built in 1926 in Mobile, Alabama. In the second of our 13-part series, work on the house begins in earnest, including:

  • Plaster Removal: The old cracked plaster and wood lath is removed from the house.
  • Foundation: The concrete slab for the garage and footing for the master bedroom addition are poured.
  • Framing Repair: The framing in the existing house is repaired and reinforced. Several interior doorways are repositioned, and part of the second-floor stair landing is removed.
  • Windows and Siding Removal: The old, leaky windows and deteriorating cedar shake siding are taken off.
  • Garage Framing: The walls and roof for the two-story garage are framed up.
