Seismically Stable

The seismic retrofit to our garage is complete. In truth it was done a while ago.  We used a local company (Alameda Structural) and were very impressed. They were quick, clean, on time and on budget and extremely friendly. Some of the "during" photos had me freaked out a bit (because let's be honest, I do tend to "freak out" at unnecessary times). But hey…when your garage frame is literally floating above nothing I think it is fair to freak out a little.
