Today’s task predominately involved the lifting company carving holes in the foundation walls to prepare for the impending placement of the steel beams that will support the house during the lift.
With precise measurement, the section of the foundation that must be removed is first measured, then marked, and finally opened up. Notice there are several holes running the length of each wall.
The above photo illustrates the marking of the space that needs to be removed followed by several drill holes to weaken the area and finally the square of foundation wall is removed. With record flooding being recorded in Australia this past January, the mid-west of the United States this spring, and most recently in Calgary, Canada, I feel very fortunate to have this process underway.
