Preperation for the House Lift has begun

Northern House Raising showed up this morning to start the preperations for the house being lifted later in the week.

I’m going to be posting pictures of the raise and restump every day that they work on it. Below are the photos that I took tonight after I got home from work. It was dark already but the flash did a pretty good job.

House Lifting Day 1 - Blocks removed from the front
Day one of the Raise and Restump – Front of the House
(I always wanted to be able to drive the car in there)

House Lifting Day 1 - Back - Blocks being removed
Day one of the Raise and Restump – Rear of the House

House Lifting Day 1 - Under the House - Blocks being removed
Day one of the Raise and Restump – Under the House

It looks like now we will only need to be out of the house for one night, either Friday or Saturday. That is a lot better then when we thought we had to be out for the full week.
