Repairs to the foundation commenced on April 3, 2017.
The work done on the first day is shown in this video.
A few days later the site had dried enough to allow continuation of the work.
A drain was installed to prevent future accumulations of water.
A form was built. The drain pipe that runs to the sump can be seen.
The form was filled with concrete. A temporary sump pump keeps the site drained.
After the concrete dried, hydraulic jacks raise the sagging wall a small amount each day.
