Project Overview

The interface between modern and older existing structures usually presents quite a challenge. In the framing stage, just after the sheathing has been added, it is quite easy to see the garage and extra space above the garage. this was a difficult project due mainly to the existing building's history and the steep slope on the back side of the building. The original structure, "sandwiched" in the middle of the addition and the previous two story addition on the far end, was built circa 1900. Buildings, in Humboldt County, which are of this age have very little in common with modern conventional framing and building techniques, thus the interface between the two usually involves quite a bit of creative problem solving.
