When we last left-off, the workers were harvesting bricks from the side of the porch which will be covered by a new foundation and slab. No sense in covering up perfectly good bricks when we need them for the outside facing part. You can see below most of the bricks they were able to remove and salvage from our brick pile hanging out next to the garage (left over from our previous major renovation).
Finally, they installed the new foundation wall.
Why does everything take longer than you think it should? I'm still hoping to have this wrapped up by the end of the month at the absolute latest. I really want to use the porch in May!
