The new floor ..
The new basement walls are now holding up the floor joists for the area that will extend our kitchen and become our new dining room too.
We used the engineered floor joists which allows us to span the entire room without having to support with lolly-columns. This way our basement area will be a full 20 x 32 area that we can use.
The cut-out you see is where the stairway is that will lead down into the basement.
