Bob and contractor Ed Weller take on the tricky process of tying together the old and new floor slabs. Work begins on the new family room partition that will take the unique shape of a banana leaf. To make sure the new space stays cool, an HVAC unit and roof insulation are installed.
Part 1: Pouring a Concrete Floor
Bob watches a strip of concrete being poured between two existing slabs. Rebar is placed in the existing slabs to prevent cracking, and a joining compound is added to ensure proper adhesion.
This project features the remodeling and expansion of the kitchen and family room of a 15-year-old suburban Miami tract house. Innovative and fun projects include walls built using insulated concrete forms, stucco application, and glass block walls.
