1900's Basement

You wonder how the building is still standing, with nicely sloped floors! Same building as previous crawlspace post. :slight_smile:

You sure about that 1900’s date? In my area, that would date mid to late 1800’s, typically 1880’s. Just curious, as I find it interesting the migration of materials and techniques across the country over the years.

John, remember, you’re not doing a code inspection. The building is still standing. It’s fine! Just needs some paint.

Yeah, paint the telescoping columns. I took 376 photos during the inspection of this 3 apartment building. The living conditions were not good.

I’ve seen better basements than that in houses dating to 1820s!!!
