Belmont Victorian | Bracing the Basement
To fix the slanted kitchen floor, Tommy jacks up the basement ceiling with temporary braces, installs a new support beam and pours footings for new lally columns. The homeowners want to save the marble sink and claw foot tub in the second floor bathroom, so Norm carefully disassembles the fixtures so they can be cleaned. Tommy gets the final beam specifications from the engineers and explains to Kevin the plan for holding up the back of the house. Richard tours Belmont's 1853 Homer House, which features original plumbing and air conditioning systems. Kevin finds Tommy in the future master bathroom of the project house, where he's carefully pulling up the flooring so he can reuse it to patch other areas of the house. Tommy and Kevin finish up work in the basement with new lally columns to support the house.
