Hope!

The bathroom has been torn apart.  Remember the tub in the dumpster?
The space under the window is where that tub sat.

The cantilever failed for a number of reasons:

  • the joists didn’t come in twice as far as they projected out
  • the joists were notched, we can only guess why
  • there was no header over the basement window
  • someone may not have taken into consideration how much a tub full of water weighs?

    Besides not correctly framing the cantilever, why would someone put plumbing supplies and a drain “outside” ?

    Not only saggy  but a bit soggy too (years of leaking pipes?)
