Jacking Bricks

We had to jack up the brickwork to the right of the wall section we have been working on. We decided that instead of relying on the bricks to not fall again, we would use pressure treated lumber to make it again. This area had sagged a little over half an inch because the “nailer” they used for the crown molding rotted out.

Metal Weights

We had to get creative on how to hold the metal crown molding in place while we poured the next batch of concrete. We decided on concrete blocks. The blocks will enable us to get the crown molding in the exact spot and will keep the bottom of the form in place. The concrete blocks will be eternally encased in the wall.
