My Old House...help

Postby RAGBAG on Wed Jan 03, 2018 7:29 pm

Hi..I have a verifiable 120 yo farmhouse..I've had lots of pier/beam issues..sort of have them fixed for now til house moves again..it sits in sand..my concern now is the front porch which has 6 columns across the front of it..tongue/groove which has been patched in places n now the columns are giving on the porch. Can someone tell me how to brace up the columns while I repair the brick foundation they have under them.. they have twisted n are leaning more so on the Northeast side than the other side
