Notes: Video and digital photos of concrete slab demolition at bottom of southeast stair. Where demolition has begun just inside west door, there is a built-up asphaltic waterproofing layer about 3" below the existing slab. This waterproofing appears to be on top of another concrete slab. The extent of the waterproofing is unknown. The waterproofing may relate to when this area was outside, prior to construction of the enclosed breakfast room.
