The kitchen of Christian's old farmhouse was a newer addition and has it's own drainage, but while the front porch floor is open and excavated, a new PVC pipe has been installed to tie the kitchen to the rest of the house's drainage system. A pump will be added since there is a slight pipe upgrade through the porch and the old beam here has been "sistered" with two 2" X 4" boards; leveled for the new floor. Brilliant.
This summer, Christian plans to pull up the center of the kitchen floor and dig out a deeper crawl space which will have a cement floor poured. Here we go again.
