Took 2 days.
Also the hardest one as it needs to be very tightly coupled with the existing house.
More demolition was necessary
very long day which ended with moving 300 bales of hay.
Always a weird feeling to take a crowbar to your house
A car jack comes in handy
Leveling, lasering, measuring, repeat ad infinitum
One of the piers was a bit high so we chiseled the beam
3 2x8x24, plywood, liquid nails & an infinite amount of screws & nails
Going through the beam from one end to another to straighten out wood imperfections
We’re building again, this is what we’re going after this time. The plan isn’t 100% final yet
I see at least one
Ken and his invaluable experience are back, we took a bad start but eventually reached a good cruising speed which allowed us to plant 14 piers in a single day.
Never an easy feeling to have these things fly above your head
When all is done, I was beyond tired.
