2 mold growing on bottom side of couch board.
10 Here you can barely see where the wall has sunk. It is more pronounced in the next picture.
18 It's a blurry picture I know. Here's where we're digging out the rotted floor from under the walls. The walls are always built on top of the floor unfortunately.
19 This is looking directly under the wall after the area has been cleaned out and dried.
20 Here we are using blocks to help support the wall while we finish removing all the rest of the floor from under the wall.
23 The way the floor was made was 1 1/2 inch thick plywood in the corners becuase this is what the stabilizer jacks mount to. Then there was simply a sandwich in the middle part. Here we elected to use a more typical floor joist system at 10 inch centers for extra support.
25 The last sheet of 1/2 inch plywood will cover the entire area of the this picture and will be screwed and adhered to form an over-sized sandwich, probably 3 times stronger than the original.
26 I started rolling out the linoleum before I realized I hadn't taken a picture of the final floor board (top of sandwich). Here you see the right side of it.
28 This is the area under the table. The linoleum is wrinkled from being folded / rolled up during the repair.
