    Default Foundation of Federation house

    Would be grateful for someone with experience in renovating old houses to upload some photos of foundation of a typical Federation double brick houses.

    What is the likelihood that the foundation can handle a 1st storey addition with Hebel boards + colourbond roof ?

    Only a structural engineer can tell you for sure however if it is double brick and structurally sound it's highly likely that you could add another storey.

    If your in Sydney it could be on sandstone foundations, can you crawl under and have a look?
