Suspect. Balloon framed home.
In balloon framed buildings, long, vertical 2" x 4 stud lumber is for the exterior walls. What should I be looking visually, as well as measuring, in the basement?
As well, using a thermal camera, what should I be looking for at floor/wall assemblies.
Sorry no thermal images just yet. Reinstall Fluke Smartview.
1930’s 2 story, shingle veneer envelope, no brick shelf, cantilevered front porches. Basement egress abandoned.
Images 204825 is the girder cased in foundation concrete.
All joists are in masonry.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Looking forward to any/all answers.
