Hello. How are you doing? I'll be happy to assist you with this question
I'm a little unclear exactly what you're looking for.
You ask how to attach a post to the wall, but then ask about foundations to avoid fixing it to the wall.
Do you have any sketches or drawings that you can share?
I will check back periodically.
Hi thank you for getting back to me
I have an existing house and need to build an extension
the architect suggested a steel beam which is perpendicular to the rear wall to hold the extension roof
my question is: How to build the steel coulmn close to the existing house
Thanks and sorry for the confusion
Thank you for the sketch. Can you point out where the column you're concerned about is located?
Hi, Please find attached the required column. many thanks
just we thought that 5m span is too much for a timber joist !!?
Any way, if the builder insists that we need a column, how do you think we can install it close to existing wall? How we can support the column considering the existing foundations?
can we do local underpin?
