As we continue on in our renovations we decided to take the basement stairs down and remake them straight instead of with a turn.
We had to go through the concrete of the original house foundation and found it was packed with rocks! This made it very difficult to do so my husband had to rent a jack hammer!
My husband also finished taking down another spot since he had it already and that’s when I noticed a large piece set aside, he said he found it in the wall and it was granite!!!
It still has some brick stuck to it but I can only imagine how using granite would be cheap? I can see how the rocks would be, any market out there for rocks hundreds of years old!! Lol
Next we will rebuild these stairs to go straight down, then the second story stairs can be done the same way.
It’s such a slow process but it is coming along.
