PSIP Description: 
The layout and excavation for the new footings for the home's first floor addition gets underway.
Long Description: 
The Lexington homeowners want to stay in the house during the renovation, so Tom shows Kevin how he's going to demo in phases, keeping the kitchen intact for as long as possible. Today, they'll tackle exterior demo only, starting with the back porch. Norm explains the framing of the first floor platform. Roger gets underway with the layout and excavation for the new footings for the first floor addition. The new prefab footings are unloaded into the backyard, set, leveled and plumbed. Kevin explains the building permit process and the role of the building commissioner, Fred Lonardo, as he comes in to make his first inspection.
