After over three months of digging solid clay and rocks out from under the 1780's original part of Christian's old farmhouse, the new floor is ready for concrete. Three footings are in place in order to add central support as well as an additional overhead beam in the full basement, which is now much enlarged.
Having a dry basement and crawl space beneath most of the house now, has transformed the feeling one has inside of it. For us these are pretty pictures (although quite dim) of newly reinforced old foundation walls under an old brick insulated house we have been able to save.
