Encountered a 2" thick strip of wood within a 2-wythe bonded brick wall (party wall) right above basement floor level(3 Story Above). Basically, the brick wall was constructed to a certain height, a 2" wood board was placed down and then the construction of brick continued on top of this wood board. The wood is all the way thru the wall. I've heard of this before...does anyone know the purpose and/or have heard of a tried/true technique to shim/repair/replace?
