Walker-Ewing Log Cabin
Collier Township, Pennsylvania


TSE provided structural assistance to the Pioneers West Historical Society during a recently completed major renovation at the historic Walker-Ewing Log House in Collier Township.  In order to avoid expensive and invasive replacement of a leaning foundation wall, TSE designed a tension rod solution that was installed at a fraction of the cost and preserved the original stone construction.  TSE also designed structural details to arrest structural failure of the attic floor framing, which was separating along in interior bearing wall, and to address rotting wood conditions at several locations around the cabin's perimeter.
