Roseland Cottage

Bay Windows

Intruding ground water and drainage issues focused attention on the substandard foundation of the house. Uneven settling of the structure caused certain segments of the house, like the bays, to settle faster than other parts causing a range of damage and a definite lean to the space. It was necessary to resupport the building and bring these elements back to level. Here, the north bay window has had its foundation stones removed and has been jacked back to level.

A masonry block foundation was laid on new concrete footing, the brick work restored, and the granite facing slabs replaced. Pictured below is the south bay, receiving the same treatment as the north.
