Thanks guys! I'm still working on it ! I have the edge of the floor shored up and the main beam on cinder blocks and I pour concrete in them. The rough cut oak matches the original beams perfectly !
This is the edge of the floor that needed support. It has cinder block under it too
Cinder blocks under the beam
Rotting beam running through the old hearth . I treated it with minwax wood hardener .
I know I've mentioned ground hogs on here before! Damn critters have a burrow under my house right below the septic line... Whoever ran this PVC line was one small ass dude that's all I have to say ! Theres only 9" of clearance there! Gonna fill it with concrete! Such is life! Everything rots . Nothing last forever ! You just have to be ok with it you know? I need some more lumber in the morning and cinder blocks .
People are shooting guns that means that it's new years! Happy New years. Im standing in a hole under my house
