Will found these in the attic this week. Twenty years ago I lifted our old farm house up in the air. I raised the roof about five feet and set it down on new walls as well as putting in a foundation. It was quite the sight to see, with the wind blowing through beneath. The hydraulic car jacks above are some of the ones we used for the big lift, gradually jacking up each corner and putting cribbing under the supports. It is amazing how such a little tool can lift an entire house.
I had never done it before but had seen photos of houses up on cribbing which was enough to give me ideas. While it was up in the air I used winches and ropes to straighten the crooked house’s frame before setting it back down where it has been for the past 20 years. Apparently it worked as the house has stayed put.
