One of the weird “characteristics” of the original home, is that although it has an attached garage, there is no door leading from the house into the garage. The door opens up just in front of the garage, so you have to go out into the elements if you are leaving the house and going into the garage … design flaw!
So, Joe had a doorway cut into the old garage wall, and worked with the fabulous folks at L&M Welding to get a new staircase going from in the house to into the garage. BINGO!!
