Cement, Pipes and Beams

I’ve got some new pictures from the basement.  There was a post in the middle of the floor that held up the center beam.  The post was in the middle of what I want to become my TV room, so I decided it had to go.  In order to accomplish this, I needed to pour a new footing, and put in two new posts and replace the beam with a larger, stronger beam.

This is the footing and the new post.

This is the new beam with the old post now removed.

 

 

I then needed to jackhammer up the floor to add sewer pipe to what will become my new bathroom.  I had this done by Johanson Plumbing.

Here is the floor after the pipes have been laid and cemented over.

 

 

During this time, my tub which I had ordered a little while earlier arrived.  I wanted a big tub, one that I would fit well in.  So I got the 72” version.  I have to say, it is a pretty tub.
