Donegal Garage Apartment Project Part 1

May 5, 2024

May 5, 2024

The apartment building on top of a 100’ x100’ garage started to collapse from being previously  underbuilt. Years of a water leaks caused the trusses to be weakened.

Since this is a very large project, photos and updates will be posted in two parts.

We shored up the exterior walls with 4×4 lumber and 4’ long posts hammered into the ground so the walls would not push any further when the demo started. We then removed all second floor apartments and all interior walls. Oversized LVL beams were installed at mid support with custom hangers to displace the weight approximately.

The flooring was 16” high I-joist installed every 16” and topped with ¾” T&G subflooring. To maintain a similar layout and available room on the second floor, we constructed walls around the perimeter and installed 50’ scissor trusses that would bring the center interior ceiling height to 9’.

More photos will be posted when the project is complete.
