Digging out the foundation reveals another of those surprises, surprises: There is no foundation!

Digging out the foundation reveals another of those surprises, surprises: There is no foundation!

I somehow thought that the hard part – that of restoring and sourcing original heritage building components – was over.

But of course, the surprises surprises! never stop: Turns out there’s no foundation!

As the back of the house gets prepared for the new construction, the foundation is excavated. Digging always seems to come with surprises around our 100 year old property: This time we were surprised to find no foundation at all beneath the old bathroom.

Well, maybe not too surprised, this is Woodstock after all. But it means the entire bathroom needs to be demolished.

Somebody seriously just plopped an extra room on the ground. Or, worse even, as the toilet was traditionally outside of the property grounds, we assume they might have just built the bathroom around it. 😉
