When David Ireland began removing layers of wallpaper from the interior of 500 Capp Street, he revealed the home's history, including some of its quirks. The same is true as we continue to excavate underneath the house this week. These quirks have led our team to be very thoughtful about how to proceed with the placement of some of the structural supports below the house. It has also inspired us at the 500 Capp Street Foundation to revisit the origins of the home
As an earthquake rolled through the Bay Area early on Sunday morning, it seemed like an oddly fitting start to the work week as our crew focuses on putting in the new foundation at 500 Capp Street to protect it from future earthquakes.
Six years of evaluating and planning have finally turned to action this week as the 500 Capp Street Foundation embarked on the first construction phase at 500 Capp Street, and the dramatic difference to the exterior is already visible!
