Roseland Cottage

Bay Windows

Substandard foundations exacerbated damage caused by intruding ground water forcing the bays and other parts of the house to settle faster and lean outward. It was necessary to 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 the concrete footing, the brick work restored, and the granite facing slabs replaced. This is the south bay, receiving the same treatment as the north.
