|Title||Restored masonry foundation of kitchen wall|
Excavated exterior view of east foundation wall of kitchen after masonry restoration.
Surface runoff raised pool level in excavation above door sill, saturating jamb-feet and temporary door. Re-grading and restored drainage facilities will be implemented to avoid or minimize such incursion and inhibit saturation of joint mortar. A sub-grade impervious membrane "flashing" will be installed, sloping away from the foundation, to inhibit saturation of joint mortar.
Hydraulic mortar with increased "Portland" cement content was used for bed mortar and pointing exposed joints below the restored [20th-century] grade elevation.
