Hi all, My first visit.

My house was built about 1816. The foundation is granite stones and has since been reinforced with concrete. There are 3 small windows in the foundation at ground level. The soil is held back from these windows with stones. First, I don't know if the windows served any purpose. Secondly, I'd like to remove the windows and repair the foundation properly with concerete so that soil can be filled in.

Can I remove the windows, place forms, and pour concrete?

Yes, you can do this if you want to, but these are there for ventilation. I would replace with new windows. Just a thought.
