And holy sh.t did it kick my ass. Ive been basically working on it for 12hrs. now. 8 of it on site. I missed some dumb easy stuff, but its not required by the SOP so i think im in the clear on that?!? Hopefully lessoned learned.
The house was a EXTREMELY poorly maintained Condo (owner and h.o.a.) listed as an investor special, but at least it was relatively new, 2001. I definitely got flustered and spent way more time running up and down the stairs than i should have.
Anyway the only real question i have yet is about the support of the landing going down to the basement. The walls surrounding it are “floating”. Existing support is metal strips hanging from above (2 on each side) and what looks like powder actuated nails into the foundation. It “looks” like could be adequate but i would like some second opinions.
