Yrs ago I used to drive past a house that they were adding onto. All the block piers were installed sideways like that. I don't know if they ever fixed it right as one day I drove by and it was all underpinned. What could go wrong :surprise:
I always thought it was interesting to see how some of the old houses were built/supported using creative methods.
our 2nd house in upstate ny was blt in '56 ( 1856 ),,, foundation for original house was 3' deep dug trench filled w/laid up field stone/mortar,,, over the yrs, 4 addns were added all on brick columns,,, avg frost depth 4'
