Putting a Wall Back on a Foundation

Putting a Wall Back on a Foundation

As we were cleaning out 10 years of accumulated stuff in our barn, we discovered one load-bearing wall had fallen off the foundation. We show you how we approached trying to salvage the barn shed which involved calling on a friend for some engineering help and applying a lot of on-the-spot problem solving.
