I wonder if anyone can identify these tie rods as per the attached picture.
There are 3 metal rods running from one side of the home to the other and also from front to back. They are located at the top of the stone foundation.
The ends of the rods have a round wooden disc about 10" diameter on each end.
I have never seen these wooden discs before, only metal crosses and these are usually located higher up the wall.
Would this have been a repair or part of original construction?
I would appreciate any input.
