Our first expected unexpected. Even before work commenced, Baker Klein Engineering suspected we may need to reinforce the foundation, at least at one particular corner of the house where the sag was most noticeable. A core sample was taken from the area to check the soil and thickness but was inconclusive.

Our contractor has now dug up four corner areas and confirmed with Tamara, the engineer, that we need to pour additional foundation support at four spots, so the beam replacement has slowed almost to a stop while this work is completed and inspected. We’re going back down before we go up again.
