[ENG] Construction 101: Stone corbels and brick arches

| ۩ |


I already explained here (in italian only, for now) the reasons that brought me to modify the right side of the Domus adding a protruding structure. Now it's time to move from words to deeds!

The wall needs to be adjusted to insert the stone corbels that will bear the arches. Moreover, the last line of stones is not perfectly integrated with the rest of the wall, as the ashlars are slightly bigger that the others. A further reason to tear it down (partially).


So I can start removing those stones and cutting the underlying blocks to make room for the corbels. Operation successfully achieved with the diamond cutting wheel of my Dremel tool.
This first set of corbels sticks out from the wall for half its lenght and the full depth of the overhanging structure will be reached by a second line of stones.
