The house dates back a billion years. Some parts older than others, and added as either obvious/not-so-obvious extension.
One such structure is a stand-alone room whose rear-wall (upto about 3 feet above the ground) are thick stones with what appears to be lime mortar dating goodness knows when. The sides perpendicular to the back wall are (I believe) load bearing (constructed without the aid of concrete pillar/beam) bricks dating to the early 1900s.
Both side-walls have developed a network of deep, through cracks beginning about the same height at the point they join the rear wall. I'm told embedding rebars along the load-bearing wall shall provide the necessary tensile strength.
Does embedding rebars along a load-bearing wall provide some tensile strength to it?
