I think I figured out how to insert pics without the link. Sorry if this doesn’t work I am tring.

This is the wall before I cut it out for the door.

Pic 2 outside

The next 5 pics are under the house before the door.





The next 5 pics are after the door outside and in.





This is a hole for the footer for the new column. It is 2’x2’x18”

The last 4 pics is where I dug out the dirt for the floor.

This is interesting. And that is a lot of digging!!!! I assume that you are doing this by hand. Wow!! That is one aspect of the project that I am betting you will be glad when it is finished. Keep us posted on your progress.

You have your work cut out for you. Been there, done that. When it is finished you will be so glad foe two reasons. 1) It’s finished, and 2) It’s finished. LOL You’ll love the new shop when your done.

There has been many people that would have liked to have their craw space dug out but didn’t have the $40,000.00 to do it. Well I guess you feel the same way so you are doing it your self and digging it out BY HAND. This was never better than now…... YOUR THE MAN.
