    I think we may need a little more than this.

    We had a job during June and July that just kept growing. My employer has been working for a couple of years to open a grocery co-op in the neighborhood to bring quality food at affordable prices into an underserved market. The building is owned by a generous benefactor, but it was in much worse condition than we expected. Much of the early work was done by neighborhood volunteers, but that side of the building had to be forgotten about for a while because the floor joists are no good. We switched plans to use the side with an unlevel concrete floor instead. The plan was that we would just level as needed, because it just needed to be done quick. Unfortunately, things were not nearly that easy.

    The initial plan was to break out around the edges and level over the existing floor. Remember, there wasn't much of a budget for construction.

    [​IMG]
    The drain pipe that we raised in the middle is the actual finished level of the floor.

    [​IMG]
    That's not good.

    [​IMG]
    Turns out the fill from when the original building on this site was demolished had never been properly compacted, so it settled over forty years and created a void under most of the floor.

    [​IMG]
    It's a good thing we discovered it before we tried to put freezers on the floor.

    [​IMG]
    Unfortunately, this was about an inch too tall to get in the garage doors.

    Got this little guy in the front door though.

    Time to clean up all that concrete from the floor. The small stuff went to my house a couple block away to use for fill, and the big stuff went in a dumpster.

    The building. It's pretty boring, but we are doing a lot of facade improvements soon.

    Needed to do some grading in a small park with dirt I had moved months ago, but never got a chance to level.

    Lot's of work inside with new walls too. We contracted out the floor finishing since it became a much bigger project and we just can't do that much fast enough. Cheaper and quicker to let the guys that do it every day take care of the work.

    This wall actually hides a large hole in the floor that we will eventally need to rebuild.

    Leaky roof too.

    Lot's of late nights for this project. We had an almost unmanageable deadline. Nothing like 100 hours weeks.

    Painting by flashlight because the new lights didn't get installed for another day.
