Block Foundation - Corner Construction???
Hi Guys, I did an inspection on a home that has a block basement. The corner blocks are installed so that a small air gap is visible on every second row.
I have not seen this type of design before and was wondering if anyone knows why this is constructed this way? Is this common construction?

As far as I am concerned the gaps should have been mortared.
It appears in the photo that there is a water stain in the corner at floor.

The value of experience is not in seeing much, but in seeing wisely.
