|Dan in the basement, peaking up through the open cavity in the floor.|
The beam between the two back bathrooms and the parlor is completely rotten and will be replaced in-kind.
|The extent of the rot makes saving the beam impossible.|
|The top floor and sub floor were both removed to get to the beam. You can see right down into the basement.|
|A supporting wedge holds the wall in place while Dan works.|
The dado was removed for the duration of the project so it is safe and out of the way. It will be put back when the beam and flooring is replaced.
|The dado will stay safe on the other side of the room while the work is done.|
