Last winter and spring we dug out under this 3 unit building off Lakeshore Ave. in Oakland to make a nice lower apartment. Here are some pictures. This is our second project in the Grand Lake Theater area. We are currently on our 3rd.
This is the beginning we shored up the building with railroad ties and started digging out with a bobcat for more head height.
New foundation and slab for floor of lower unit.
The work in progress. The walls and roof are framed, ready for stucco.
This is the place after stucco, redwood rooftop deck and enclosed private entrance.
