Podcast Episode 57 — Remodeling a Snowy Mountain Home
Also, are footings for an existing garage foundation a good idea?
In this podcast episode, host and editor Justin Fink is joined by editorial director Rob Yagid and design editor Brian Pontolilo. They have advice for a listener who is remodeling a mountain home in California where it snows — hard!
Listeners also ask about sheathing and wall technology, garage foundations, and more.
