Application filed June 30, 1924. Serial No. l7223,224,

To all whom t may concern.'

' Be it known that we, SHnnwrN Gienons and HERMAN B. HENSEL, citizens of the United States, residing at Lancaster, in the county of Los Angeles and State of California, have 'invented certain new and useful Improvements ,in a Wall Construction and Method of Forming the Same, of which the following is aspecication.

This invention relates to new and useful `improvements in wall structures and has for its principal object tok provide a structure which may be easily and readily constructed and will further Vbe water proof as well as weather proof.

Another important object of the invention is to provide a wall structure of the'` character above described wherein reinforcing` means is associated therewith, the same being adapted to be embedded in the material used in the construction of the wall.

A further object is to provide a wall struc- Y ture of the above mentioned character, which is simple in construction, inexpensive, strong and durable and furthermore adapted for the purposes for which it is designated.

Other objects and'advantages of this invention will become apparent during the course of the following description.

In the accompanying drawing forming a part of this specification and in which like numerals designate like parts throughout the same: l

Figure l is a side elevation of our improved wall structure showing the various steps in the construction thereof.

Figure 2 is a fragmentary vertical sectional view thereof. p Y

Figure' is a transverse section showing the spaced studs and the anchoring means associated therewith, and

`Figure 4l is a detail perspective View of the woven wire engaging hook.

In the drawing wherein for the Vpurpose of illustrationis shown the preferred ernbodiment of `our invention, the numeral 1 designates a plurality of parallel spaced studs which are preferably formed of wood and the base of the wall structure is designated by the numeral 2. The studs 1 eX- tend upwardly therefromv in the manner clearly illustrated in F igure- 1. The studs or standards may be of any suitable thickness and arranged on the inner opposed sides thereof are the anchoringmeinbers 3 which are arranged in staggered relation' as is more clearly illustrated in Figure 2. rlhe purpose of the anchoring members will hereinafter be more fully described.

Extending outwardly from the opposite faces of each standard or stud l are the fastening members 4l, the same beingprovided to secure to the opposite faces of the spaced standards the woven wire 5. The woven wire which extends on the opposite sides of the standards is also secured tothe base 2 and at its upper endto a similar strip which extends across the ends of the standards (not shown).. 'f

For the purpose of preventing the outward bulging of the woven wire `fabrics which extend across the opposite faces of the spacedk studs or standards, the double ended hooks 6 are provided. The manner in which the double ended hooks 6 cooperate with the opposed woven wire fabric 5 is clearly illustrated in Figure 2 of the drawing. Any number of these hooks may be used as is desired for accomplishing the purposes for which the same are designated.

To furtherV prevent the downward sag'- ging of the woven wire fabric during-the filling' of the spacesbetween the standards and the woven fabrics with dirt which has been dampened, the temporary facing strips 7 are temporarily secured across the 'opposed faces of the spaced standards and `spikes or the'like such as are illustrated 'at 5%v rest on the upper edges of the transversely extending temporary strips 7 and extend through certain of the loops in the woven fabrics 5 on each of the opposedfaces of the strips in the manners also clearly illustrated in Figure 2. lVith the woven wire fabrics secured in position on the opposite faces ofthe spaced strips and the supporting hooks arranged in position with respect to the woven wire fabrics, damped soil is deposited between the spaced strips and the woven-wire fabrics on the opposite faces thereof to entirely fill the spaces' above formed for the entire length of the strips or standards. After the soil has been left standing for a suitable length of time, the temporary facing' strips are removed and the spikes 8 will remain embedded in the soil as will also the connecting hooks 6.

A coating B consisting of soil hydrated lime and cement which is mixed to form a substantially pasty Vsubstance Vis then plas- After the coating` B has dried, a wash consisting of hydrated lime, cement, sand and water is applied with a brush or the like to the coating and any suitablecoloring matter may be included in the wash as is desired.'

The provision of a wall structure of the above mentioned character, will render the wall waterv proof as well as weather proof and will be inexpensive in its constructure yet strong and durable. ture may be used in the formation of floors or any other part of a building as may be desired and to prevent the cement from cracking at the endsv of the studs or standards, metallic plates may be secured thereto.

While we have shown the preferred embodiment of our invention, it is to be understood that various changes in the size, shape and arrangement of parts may be resorted A similar struc-k to without departing from the spirit of the invention and the scope of the appended claim.

Having thus described the invention, what we claim is The method of constructing a wall of the class describedcomprising -in erectingparvallel spaced studs, securing wire fabric to the opposed faces of said studs, placing temporary strips transversely across the opposed faees'of the studs, connecting the posed faces of the strips and the woven wire and the filling.

In testimony whereof we affix our signatures.
