AbstractOn August 14 and 16, 1954 inspections were made of houses in the Great West Development Limited Project in St. James, Manitoba. These houses had suffered extensive basement floor damage due to soil volume changes. The report only touches upon a major problem in house design and construction. Soil conditions in Winnipeg make the matter of good basement design usually difficult.
