To kick off the New Year, SOB Construction traveled up to San Ardo in Central California from Los Angeles to provide some demolition work on a ranch work shed. The shed is about 30×50 and is in desperate need of a new slab and foundation. The owners wanted to save the old redwood workbench so they could put it back in the shed after pouring new foundation and slab. We started with removal of the workbench and pulled it off the wall, being carful not to disturb the wall and foundation the bench was attached to. After removal of the bench, we started removal of the slab. The slab was 4-6″ thick and just crumbled under our pry bars. We spent approximately 8 hours in total breaking up the slab, loading it up into wheel barrows and hauling them away. The shed floor is now prepared for a new slab. We also dug out around the exterior foundation to expose it in preparation for removal and the pouring of the new footers. The next step is to pour the slab, prop up the building, dig out the old foundation, pour new foundation and footers and anchor the building to the footer.
