Phase one of the the Manship House foundation repair project is now underway!  This phase prepares the building for re-leveling.  So far the prep work has included removal of the front and side steps,  step buttresses, and their concrete foundations.  Next, the old HVAC units and all HVAC ductwork were removed, and a temporary HVAC system installed.  The sprinkler system piping and insulation have been removed, and the east end of the house will be placed on a temporary support, and the concrete footing will be removed.

Work begins with the removal of the front steps, and all ductwork under the house.
