Gut Rehab and Addition Double the Size of A Minneapolis Foursquare

This house was built in 1927. Like many others of that time, it had a stucco exterior and lath and plaster interior with red oak floors. Unlike many houses of the time, it has a poured-concrete foundation, which is much stronger than the rubble foundations that many homes in Minneapolis are built on.

This first video in the series focuses on the existing conditions and the demolition sequence. Following videos will look at foundation and framing, exterior shell, and interior finishes.
