This is the question that I was asking myself this weekend as I moved everything out from under our house to put in a friends shed while our house is being lifted and then enclosed under. It took us about seven loads in a small trailer and my station wagon to get most of it over.
We still have a lot of questions about the process of having our house lifted and will affect a lot with how we prepare for next week when it will be happening. We are going to be taking down all of our pictures and stuff from the walls, but I don’t know if I need to go as far as removing the books from the bookshelf, if you know what I mean. We are going to try to organize a meeting with the contractor doing the raise and restump and then find out some more details.
I am hoping that while they do the lifting that I will be able to head over there at least two times a day to take photos. It’s going to be a pretty cool process I reckon watching them lift the house, and I don’t want to miss it. I’ll try to post the images up here as well. The first day they will be knocking out all the old walls and removing the old slab from under the house, and then after that they will be starting the actual process of lifting…
Thankfully we have been able to find accomodation while we are out of our house for a week. We will be staying in some of our guest accomodation with where I work, Reef to Outback. All of us will be sleeping in one room with us actually sharing the flat with another couple who are here for a course that we are running, but it sure beats having to stay at a hotel or caravan park.
