UNITED STATES PATENT oFFicE nnwanp J. :uson im namur w. nasen, or nn'iaoir. meinem vnNEEmNe CONSTRUCTION Application lllcd Uotobcr 22, 1930. Berial No. 490,899. l

Our invention relates to a new and useful improvement in a veneer construction adapt-- and a suitable, firm support for the layer ofveneering provided so as to reduce the cost of veneering to a minimum and provide a construction by which the owners of existing buildings may economically veneer the same.

` u It is another object of the invention to provide` a su porting Vstructure carried by the original oundation' of the building which will serve to support the veneering in .a durable, substantial and satisfactory manner.

Another object of the invention is the provision of a horizontally positioned supporting member disposed .exteriorly of a foundation wall suiciently outwardly therefrom to support a layer off veneering such as brick and the like and provided with means for attaching firmly to the foundation wall of the buildin gOther objects will appear hereinafter.

The invention consistsin thevcombination .0 and arran ement of parts hereinafter` described am? claimed.

Theinvention will be best understood by a reference to the accompanying drawings which form a part of this speci cation and in which,

Fig. lis a fragmentary vertical sectional view Ggf a building showing the invention a li p ig.' 2 is a fragmentary side elevational o view of a building showing the invention applied, with a part broken away.

The invention is intended for use particularly on existing buildings and its use affords a means for economically veneering exa isting build such as frame and stucco buildings. ith construction methods as now used, itis customary in order to brick veneer an existing building to excavate exteriorl .of the foundation tothe footing and provi e extra width of foundation on the exterior. This is an expensive operation and entails considerably more expense than would be required to place the veneering on the building at the time of its construction'. i, -In the drawings we have illustrated the invention applied to an existing building having a foundation wall 7 resting on a footing 8 and provided with the basement loor l9, all of which are customaril formed from concrete. A section of the Wellin which is supported by the foundation 7 is illustrated, the sidin 10 of which extends downwardly behini the board 11.

Substantially ilush with the grade line 12 we secure in horizontal position an angle iron lhaving the vertically extending portion 13 and the horizontally. extending portion 14. A bolt 15 havin a squared head 15' is projected throu h t e angle iron portion 13 and through the ounda-tion wall 7, suitable washers 16 servin tov space the angle iron 13 outwardly a slight distance from the foundation wall. A washer 18 is positioned on the`bo1t 1.5 which is provided with the nut 17. Balsam wool or pther suitable insulating material 19 is positioned in the space 22 which separates jthe layers 21 of brick veneering from the outer surface of the foundation wall 7 and the outer surface of the siding 10. Wall ties 22' 'are secured to the foundation wall and to the siding at spaced intervals.

yA mass of concrete 23 is used to encase the supporting anl le iron and the heads 15 of the bolts project t erethrough sothat corrosion is reduced to a minimum. Thismass of concrete is supported ona washer' 25 which de` pends from the angle iron portion `14 by means of the bolt 24. Y

With this type of structure, the veneering may be cheaply and easily applied to an existing building and at the same timer sulicient support is given to thelayer of veneerin tov retain it in position. It has been foun in practice that by reducing the depth of the brick 21 from the de th of a standard size brick, the purposes oi) the veneering are obtained and the weight is considerably reduced. Itvwill be noted that the portion 14 of the angle iron serves as the supporting member or plate to support the layer of veneering and 10 that the rtion 13 serves as a reinforcement of this ate and co-operating with the bolts forms t e attaching means for securing the supporting member 14 in position. i

While we have illustrated and described the preferred form of construction of our invention, we do not wish to limit ourselvesto the.

precise details of structure shown but'desire to avail' ourselves of such *variations and modifications as may come within the scope of the appended claims.

Having thus describedour invention, what we clim is:

` projecting upwardly from said supporting.

i use on structures havin nta 1. A veneering construction adapted'for use on structures having a foundation wall projecting upwardly from the grade line,

comprising: a horizontally disposed supporting plate secured to and projecting outwardly from the outer surface of said foundation wall; a layer of veneering supported on and plate; and a. concnete mass for encasing said plate and its securing means.

2. A veneeringconstruction adapted for use on structures having'a foundation Wall projecting upwardly .from the grade line, comprising: a horizontally disposed supporting platevsecured to and projecting outwardly from the outer surface of said foundation wall; a layer of veneering supported on and projecting upwardly from said supporting plate a concrete mass for encasing said plate and its securing means; and means on said plate for supporting said concrete mass.

3. A veneering construction adapted for a foundation wall; comprising: a horizo y disposed supporting member secured to and projecting ontwardly from the outer surface of thev said foundation wall; a layer of veneering'supported on and projecting upwardly from said supporting member; and means for encasingsaid supporting member.

In` testimony whereof we have-signed the foregoing specification.
