If that's a load bearing wall then there should be no worries at 95g. Assuming the house is structurally sound to begin with

The house I bought was made in 1948. The construction of houses then was far superior to that of todays builds. 2x6's were used instead of 2x4's and so on. But this part of the house has nothing underneath it and yes on the other side of the wall is the outside it is a load-bearing. I don't think I will have a problem with it on ground level... Upstairs overtime I think the floor would weaken... Thanks for your concern because if I hadnt thought of it I might have been in trouble but I did and its level as well. 600 + pounds in one spot spread throughout 48" of stand.... YIKES!

You're going to be closer to 800+. It's not the walls (2x4 vs 2x6) that needed to be considered but instead the joists. In fact the engineered joists of today are far superior to the 'old-en'; days. Where 2x10 or double lagged 2x10's were needed for large spans todays engineered joists do with wood I's or lam` beams.

Understandable captainAhab however I was referring to support underneath the floors where 2x8's i think are actually what was used not 2x6's... I was referring to overall construction in which a house was built better, I feel. Not dogging just saying I tend to believe I will be fine.
