Streifenador Barn

The Striefenador barn dates back to the late 1700s. The existing brick foundation was set with lime mortar, and unfortunatelyy had no adequate footing, consequently the barn began to sag and the wall begin to fall out of plumb and tip out. the project required shoring the structure and then jacking it to get it back near level and plumb. Once the shoring and jacking was in place, we could begin wall removal and excavation. Excavation would be to frost line, then we would form and pour a new re-enforced concrete footing. Construction of the new barn wall would be of concrete blockconstruction to save on material and labor cost, but of most importance it would save the barn from further demise.
