WEEK FOUR: Lift process continues: holes were cut into the foundation to secure room for the steel beams.
Because we have a narrow lot and in close proximity to our neighbors, the job was especially tricky. If they had unlimited space to work (e.g., a house in an open field) and one that was all one level (e.g., shaped like a shoe box) – the house could be lifted in a day or two. Our job took a bit more time.
The beams were inserted in cross-directions to support the house during the lift with the use of a crane and lots of patience.
