We are plowing through our Waltham DER (pun intended!) with all the site work that is happening now. We have demolished the foundation and prepped the site for the new footing forms for the addition. We also installed temporary shoring of the balloon framing at the front exterior wall, as you can see in the picture.
As we have mentioned before, one of the biggest ironies in our DERs is the repurposing of the existing chimney chase in the house. The chimney, once a conduit for exhausting noxious fossil fuel gases into the atmosphere now gets demolished to make way for vertical wiring and HRV ducts bringing fresh, conditioned air, from cleaner energy sources.

On the schedule next : footings for the addition and completion of the window frame extensions into the “outsulation”. Very exciting !!
