My wife's sister Anita with our 1st Wheelhorse 1248
One day many years ago, a dairy truck backed in to the guy wire post that supports the hydro pole. The imbalanced tension was absorbed by the drive shed via its electrical mast. The constant "pull" eventually drew the building's base off of its concrete pad. Untreated wood incontact with wet dirt for maybe 20 years managed to disintegrate the first 2 feet of structural framing. The owner tryed to shore it up with partical board with obvious results.
I loosened off the hydro wires and cabled and jacked up that sucker till it was almost straight. After reframing the base I applyed one inch board and batton from a local mill and even built out the sides a bit to make it look straight. It may not be perfect but I'll park my wife's Jag in there without a worry.
My Scotch grrand-dad 'a been mighty proud 'o the savin's - aye!
From this . . .
. . . to this!
Note: The 10 inch dutch cove vinyl siding matched the original siding to a "tee".
. . . Sure, I could have taken a sample of the original stuff and had it re-milled for authenticity, but I've got better things to do with my time and money - ye know!
