Fenwick, Old Saybrook, CT
In order to raise the house to the desired elevation, we needed to dig around the entire existing foundation to allow space for the workers for Aquidneck Building Movers and Riggers, Inc. to be able to work effectively. By slowly and evenly raising the house with a system of jacks, wood blocks, and steel I-beams, the building was raised higher than desired to make working underneath possible. Fill was needed inside to the foundation so the material was placed on a small, mobile conveyor belt and transported through the openings inthe foundation. After all the sub-structure work was complete, the house was lowered to its new height.
