In reply to Jacking up a home by Steve Jones on August 1st, 2000 09:01 PM [Go to top of thread]

If you are talking about leveling your home with a crawl space type foundation, you have your work cut out for you. A lot of labor even if you have a backhoe. You can do one wall at a time, get a transit to shoot elevations and put in elevations stakes around the house and find the high point to start with, jack it up with bottle jacks or hydraulic, brace it up, tear out old foundation, install footing below frost depth, form the foundation, install rebar with some extending around to tie into the next wall, and pour concrete, put in bolts into the sill, replace any rotted sills, use a sill sealer, then move around the next side.
