            Looks like rubble to me that it was at one time parged with stucco or plaster-like material on the interior. I had an old house that had this done to the interior walls. Over the decades it crumbled and in many places fell away and to the floor. It was mostly a coarse sand. If you have ever seen that photo I put up a couple years ago in the "show us your shop" thread you can see some of it. The mason who re-pointed the foundation told me but I forget, it was over 25 years ago.

            Hey, I remember my Mother's and my wifes B-Days and my wedding Anniversary, those are the important things to remember right? Anything else is a gift.

              I will not post my work on the forum at this time. It's like throwing a piece of meat to the piranha's.

                          Wow they have a little bit of every thing. Galvi, Qest, CPVC, and copper. Oh and the irrigation line from the well to the pressure tank too. Is that an old standard galvanized tank in the back?

                            Yes, they just left the tank. Some guys just don't want to haul the old stuff out.

                              The rest of the story! I grew up in an old home like this ! Brings back memorys!
                              Foundation ,Hand dug or excavated by horse scoop, Maybe. Stone gathered on site ,by hand.Maybe wife mixed the lime motar. Used lumber from older buildings. Knob and tube wiring. There were probably many shelves for Bell canning jars. Dad left to fight the Nazis.
                              Came home and built new homes for all after the war. Paid to rebuild our enemys countrys.
                              Paid off our war debt. Home was built with out FANNY MAY OR FREDDY MAC. No credit cards,
                              No new cars or loans with them. No one bailed them out, when times were tough! SAVED to buy there first Kelvenator ice box CASH.
                              Of course,this isn't the present tenants! God bless My folks, and the WW 2 generation !

                              WHAT THE HELL HAS HAPPENED !
                              I can build anything You want , if you draw a picture of it , on the back of a big enough check .
