The first step in prepping for the addition was removing a 6' x 20' concrete pad and footer. (The pad was also sloped toward the house and as a result a corner of the house had severe damage - so bad that the ends of three floor joists and the sill plate were completely rotten resulting in needing to jack up the house at that corner - and that's another story...)
One of the church members has a masonry company and offered his services. Using his gas-powered wet saw he was able to score the concrete in less than 20 minutes.
Way to go Maurice!
After he scored the pad, we tried prying it up by hand. Two words - Epic Failure.
It was time to bring in the big guns...
