Today, I would like to share a video of the foundation work being done on my Victorian home in Berkeley CA. This house was built in 1902 on a brick foundation. Although there were no major deficiencies in the foundation itself, we decided to replace it so that the buyer would have confidence in the foundation of our new renovation. This video captures how the house is being supported while the new foundation is being formed and eventually poured. In our case, we have supported two side of the house with large beams and 4×4 posts, while the original shear walls were removed. Next, forms were constructed to hold the vertical portions of the foundation structure, followed by rebar placed within the forms and base area. This is where the job stood at the time of the video. Enjoy!
