The Garage wall was sagging. It was hit by a car prior to us buying the house in 1998 and has gotten worse over the years.
Another shot of the wall showing the bulge. The front corner was repaired but the whole wall really needed to come down.
Wayne taking down brick. I was cleaning the brick as he took them down.
We took down and cleaned app. 750 brick.
Rubble and brick in the driveway
After we got all the brick out we realized the footing was totally crumbled and needed to be redone. Dug a trench, put in forms, 19 bags of hand-mixed concrete later we had a footing...
Rubble removed by Malik who we met at home depot. Great guy.
Malik also delivered 20 80-lb. bags of mortar at the same time
Wayne on trowel! The first few courses were murder as they were actually below ground level. Now we are well on our way.
11/17 - Halfway up and then it started to rain
Looks like a brick wall, but glad it's not on the front of the house....
