Plumb. It's not just a fruit.

Plumb. It's not just a fruit.

It is a state of have weight bearing down directly, in a balanced and solid way. And that is the way our East Wall is now. Absolutely amazing.

The annotated picture show the before in the middle, and a picture of a level put against the wall today. The wall is a little irregular, but it is straight. And it has vertical steel beams holding it straight and in place on one side. And a vestibule with a new foundation on the other side. So it ain't goin' nowhere.
