Changing current egress’ direction in Devon, PA
This Home in Devon, PA had a regular egress you come out your door and walk up the stairs but wanted to change the direction of that egress. We had to first remove the old cellar door, demo the old stairs, cut the driveway, excavate along the house and driveway, form and pour new concrete steps, landing, and walls, measure and manufacture the new custom cellar door, install new cellar door, and finally patch the driveway. The project took about 2 weeks to complete.
