The featured image shows a beam wedged in under a sill to support it. Unfortunately, it’s not proper and won’t do much at supporting the original sill. So, I was confused as to why the supporting beam was put in at all. There was somewhat of a long run on the main support sill, so I thought that was the reason why. But one pier should have been inserted, not another beam. You will also notice that the underlying beam is tilted and kind of hammered in but no lying flat. Therefore, this is low bearing and just not enhancing any support. The masonry units that are supporting the beam are inserted with the wrong side up so they will probably crack over time. The whole job was incorrectly done and consequently written up in my home inspection report.
