Jim Katen Posted November 2, 2014 Report Share Posted November 2, 2014 I was leafing through the 1911 City of Portland Building Code (thanks, Blair Pruitt) and came upon this interesting entry: Foundation walls are to be laid on solid natural ground wherever practicable. Where solid ground is not obtainable, the foundation walls are to be supported on caissons filled with Portland cement concrete or on piles, spread footings, or ranging timbers. Any idea what the heck a ranging timber might be? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
