Pics of the damage to the brick wall

These pics are to show the damage caused when the wall bowed out and the bricks took a tumble... the pics are from April and since then, the problem has continued. The wall is more noticeably bowed out now--although we caught the next batch of bricks before they tumbled, and propped them up.


  1. How on earth are you going to fix that

  2. The wall has to be taken down and rebuilt, from the front door around the corner, all along the side in the pic (the south side), around the corner to the back door. It's a BIG job!

  3. WOW! That's pretty serious. Did you know that the building was in that kind of shape when you bought it?

  4. No Linus; we thought all that had to be done was having the bricks relaid where they fell out. We had a structural engineer look at it and at the time, that was all he said was necessary.

    Unfortunately, in the ten months since he looked at it, the damage has gotten worse.


So... what do you think?
