2005 rubble retaining wall, brick column, brick sidewalk
In the photo below, notice that tacky plastic lattice spanning between the brick columns under the porch? Yes, I confess I am to blame. It was the easiest and cheapest fix for the rotted, termite-infested stuff that was there when we moved in. And why is it that you don't see any lattice in the front? Aha! (scroll down)
Did you guess? Duh.....there IS NO COLUMN in the inner corner!
These are bricks I found lying around and under various corners and crawlspaces outside the house. Some were unearthed during other excavations.
