The long story short - we are continuing to build a pump room, a room to store inside pumps and other aggregates, earlier this Summer we drill a bore hole and we are looking to draw in water to the house. For that we need a pump room.
Unfortunately the old log walls have been rotten and we started to replace them with aerated concrete blocks, prior to that we had to strengthen foundation. During foundation works we found out that there are parts were there are no foundation at all for house, it has been sitting just on few stones for more than hundred years. We had to change that.
The task is neither complicated nor hard, it involves a lot of dealing with different things, planing, leveling, organizing materials and so on.

Fibo blocks are sitting on foundation footing. See: Pouring Concrete Footing
Concrete is poured over and metal rods are added to strengthen foundation
Support for roof

Who said foundation works cannot be romantic?
