Historical Restoration Eyre Hall (circa 1735) | Case Study


Historical Restoration Eyre Hall (circa 1735)
Eyre Hall (circa 1735)
Project: Eyre Hall is located on the Eastern Shore. It is one of the most well preserved colonial homes in Virginia, and it is on the National Register of Historic Places. McPherson Design Group was hired for emergency stabilization of a chimney at the main building in 2005. Due to instability of the soils directly below the chimney, MDG recommended that helical piles be installed around the chimney. Then steel beams were utilized to jack the chimney back to its original position and transferred loads from the chimney to concrete mats and the Helix piles. Part of the work for this project included repairs to the brick that is over three hundred years old.

The land on which it sits has been owned by Eyre descendents continuously for 12 generations, since Thomas Eyre landed in Jamestown in 1622 and took over the patented land in 1623. Thomas' great-grandson, Littleton, purchased the present site of Eyre Hall and built the original portion of the building in 1735. The property grew periodically over the years. A dairy in 1760 and a smokehouse was added around 1806.

Solution: During emergency repairs the Advanced Team installed five Magnum MH-313, 32 kip ultimate piles to an average depth of 18' below chimney base. The Helix pile installation was performed in the 275 year old cellar utilizing hand held equipment and completed in several days.
