Making some progress on the foundation
slow, but accurate as possible, to get the floor framing polygon as right as possible. This all done over this strong, old, settled, out of square foundation. This has to be done for the upper floor to be square plumb and level. There will be blocking between the old lower plates and the new upper plate, right above the beam, not that it matters. But since the roof will be a hip roof, it bears on the entire outside wall.
