July 5thIt sat, broken and abused, for 5 months. I passed by on my way to a client's house, and saw them begin their operation! It was a horribly hot day, as well.
July 7thThey had a tight budget, but they hired a Merrickville firm to repair the work, reusing what bricks they could. The inner part of the post is made of concrete blocks, with smaller bricks around. I had noticed them working, grabbed a photo from the dashcam, and I started keeping up on it.
First job, setting up the bricks for easy access, while removing the broken ones. You can see the cement blocks that anchor the post.
