You can tell you're getting old when you get excited about foundation repairs. #adulting

@JB Carroll
Felt the same way about asbestos abatement. We're so old!
Nice. That looks like solid work, @JB Carroll . Are you putting rebar in there?
@Andy H3 definitely not doing it myself, haha. Unfortunately my basement wall in that location had lateral and vertical shift, so need to have vertical piling and braces installed. Lots of work/expense, but rather have my house keep standing. 😁
That's wise! Yeah it won't be cheap if it needs pilling, especially if they are driving them in confined spaces.
That is some next-level adulting right there. Way to get her done.
@alysonsee (Fca) the repair added some excitement yesterday. The generator they were using was too close to the house and set off our CO detector, which correspondingly made our security company send the fire dept. out. My wife who WFH did not get much accomplished yesterday...

Thank goodness we don't repair our basement every day! 😅
