These clients in the Spicewood, Texas , on the outskirts of Austin, Texas had originally hired a supposedly reputable general contractor in the area to handle their room addition / complete home remodel. They discovered a few quality issues with the work and asked us to work on their home and help them complete the remodel.

While originally I was going to focus mainly on other aspects of the home, we discovered some serious issues with the structural integrity of the home.  The picture above shows the work we did after the structural repair.

We also discovered that the gable studs (in the next few pictures) were both NOT cut long enough and thus were NOT supporting the roof load which should have been transferred to the beam.

Notice the door shims that they used and the big gaps between the studs and the beam. Instead of the beam being supported by the wall, it was cut at the fireplace which was supporting the weight of the beam.Structural framing repairs in Austin Tx by Vintage Modern Design BuildStructural framing repairs in Austin Tx by Vintage Modern Design Build
