|12 in deep x 30 in wide footing poured into hole in foundation|
|Ready to start laying the bricks and stones|
We found the hole by accident, when my guys decided that the front flower beds weren't salvageable and were digging them completely up. They found the seemingly massive hole in the foundation, which was loosely packed with crumbling and disintegrating rubble and had the remains of decades old plastic sheeting, shredded and pretending to offer some sort of protection against the elements and fauna of the area.
|Yeah! Almost done!!!!|
It continues to astound me when I think of how many short cuts and cheap solutions the previous owners took instead of just doing a job correctly the first time. It's like every single simple repair or reno has turned into an epic repair job, even just removing wallpaper or changing out an appliance, sigh.
