Cottage foundation

Posted by GMC on July 22nd, 2000 09:21 AM

I own a 30' by 32' cottage with small enclosed porch on back and screened porch on the front. It has been in the family for years. There is no plumbing or well. The cottage sits on piers. The only exterior connection is electric.

I want to up grade the entire cottage and think I should start with installing a foundation. One contractor has quoted a price of 30K to jack cottage, set three steel beams and construct a CBS foundation. The seems a bit high to me. I beleive the price is high because he did not want the Job. (construction is active in this area). Can you advise how I can properly estimate the materials and labor for a job like this. Any help would be appreciated.
