Pictures of jacking the old house by www.dingeymovers.com.
Yes, we are really jacking the house up fourteen and one half feet.
Digging out the crawl space to make room for the beams.
The two main beams weigh 9500 plus pounds each. Even the ducks stopped by to watch.
We went 28 inches and then dig all the digging but the footers.
The jack system lifts all jacks at the same time.
Now it's going up!
Eight feet to go at this point!!
Who would do this?
Four feet to go at this point!!.
Two feet to go at this point.
I must be nuts.
From here down it's up all the way.
23 feet 3 inches off the ground.
We're all nuts!!! Me and the Dingey crew!!!
Look down the missing stairway.
It's up there and we're living in it.
Dingey has his steel out so we can prepare for the concrete floors.
While Dingey is here with their equipment they put our steel in place. We also had them come back and make the final adjustments after the walls were up.
