Support beam in solid rock

I have to go do an inspection on this hose on Friday, and I’ve never dealt with support beams being inserted into rock like this before. Does anyone have experience with this building technique,and if so are there any particular things I should watch out for?Owl

The term is, Bedrock foundation.
1: Columns should be fastened secured to the bedrock to prevent rotating/rotation.
2: Wood columns in contact with bedrock. Insure wicking does not occur.
Refer to the proper specialist.

For what??

Basically same as support posts in a basement sitting on the concrete floor. Being exposed to the weather they should be treated posts.

Pay attention to the deck stairs and the lack of guard around the deck…and, the low window, Steven.

I appears that they used Simpson Strong-Tie ABU66Z 6x6/4x4 post base, or similar.

From site:

Post bases do not provide adequate resistance to prevent members from rotating about the base and therefore are not recommended for non-top-supported installations (such as fences or unbraced carports).
