Came into this kitchen remodel with the client having taken care of a majority of the demo. The old kitchen was an awkward galley kitchen with a dividing wall to a dining room that had a second patio door.
We converted the patio door on the left to an over the sink window, 3/4" plywood to give some backing for new brickwork. Also reframed in our new patio doors and by doing so opened up the can.
The deck to the backyard is two stories, kitchen walk out, along with a bedroom walk out. The old renovations were done a little on the "no regard for safety side" as neither opening above/below had lentels for the bricks. The bricks themselves were crumbling and quite a few were missing. And we also discovered the deck on both levels was tied into the house by two bolts going into broken brick.
Ripped up an opening of deck boards to discover the patio door you see on the left was actually floated over an old window that was stuffed full of insulation, broken, and full of little black rocks some 4 legged rodents must have been collecting 🤔
Cleared out what we could. Built some temporary Jack's to re support the second story deck. Mason will come in and install a sill under our new patio door and a lentel above the patio door to support the new brick work that is required along with the new sill and brickwork for our window.
Stay tuned. #builditright
