Forum Title: Stepped Foundation Walls In 1924 Home
Hello, I am doing some research on the possibility of adding a second story onto my 1924 home. I am trying to gain some insight on what the 2 to 3 foot wide 48 tall stepped sections adjacent to my basement wall are for. They go around the perimeter of 3 of the 4 basement walls. Were these added to the home some time after its initial construction while turning a crawlspace into a full height basement? Or do they have some other purpose?, i.e to function as a type of footer for the foundation walls? Here is a photo of my basement.Thanks in advance for any input on this.
