Just about to start the renovation of an 1890s to early 1900s house on brick piers. Got a few challenges including a 3m high single brick "retaining" wall that needs to be dealt with, the usual movement issues associated with poor drainage and a couple of failed footings as a result of trees being planted within a foot of the dwarf walls supporting the verandah and kitchen.
Apart from that all is good. I am a sparky by trade and about 1/2 way through my building diploma so I trust I will be able to assist others as much as I am assisted.
Cheers and Beers
